    Department of Veterans Affairs Employees Destroyed Veterans’ Medical Records

     
    Department of Veterans Affairs employees destroyed veterans’ medical records to cancel backlogged exam requests.
    “the person who said destroy the records.” And her plan was actually carried out during the Obama administration’s management of VA. Mitchell tried to blow the whistle on the scheme and ended up being transferred out of his department and eventually losing his job.
    VA Greater Los Angeles Radiology department chief Dr. Suzie El-Saden initiated an “ongoing discussion in the department” to cancel exam requests and destroy veterans’ medical files so that no record of the exam requests would exist, thus reducing the backlog, Mitchell said.
    O BY THE WAY AMERICAN VETERAN AND IF YOU SHOULD DIE BECAUSE WE LOST YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS.
    WE JUST WANT TO TELL YOU WE DID NOT LOSE THEM WE DESTROYED THEM
