A Head Honcho Is Held Accountable For Poor Care At Army Medical Facility

You don’t say

(WNCN)  Two defense officials say the chief of an Army medical center has been relieved of his command because of problems with patient care.

The officials say the commander was replaced Tuesday at Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and three deputies were suspended.

One official says the discipline comes after two deaths this month of patients in their 20s and problems with infection control at the facility that were pointed out by a hospital accreditation group.

The Pentagon announced late Tuesday that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a 90-day review of the entire military health care system.

    The rightists have been after Gen Shenseki ever since he testified that the occupation of Iraq would require 250000 troops to be successful., and Bush/Cheney were saying 25000 would do it

    Heaven forbid we stick to the topic at hand. But then J has never really been known for it.

    Wouldn’t matter who was the head of the VA, we’d still demand their firing, along with almost all the other bureaucrats at the VA centers.

    Better yet, leave the VA as is, but give our vets a voucher. Give them a choice of staying with the VA when needed, or using the voucher to buy real health care. Voucher could be graduated based upon disability and\or years of service.
