Phoenix VA gets 6th Director in last 2.5 years.

I recently wrote a blog on my other site that discusses the newly appointed VA director of the Phoenix VA hospital.  RimaAnn Nelson was the former director of the St. Louis VA facility that was mired in scandal after scandal.  It is a travesty that she’s been allowed to keep her job much less run a facility that cares for over 85,000 veterans.

At Semper Find My Home, we work with veterans at the VA facility here in Phoenix, by helping them with all their real estate needs and by educating them about their benefits and how to maximize their usage.  The VA loan is the best loan by far out there and every vet needs to utilize it for all their real estate transactions.

Another Scandal and Blow To VA HealthCare, Left Deceased Veteran in Shower For Hours

In what is becoming a reoccuring problem with the Veterans Affairs and the VA treatment of veterans, another report has come out that desribes whatt the VA staff did at a Veteran’s Hospital in Florida.

From Fox News the following “An internal report blames staffers at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Florida for leaving the body of a deceased veteran to decompose in a shower for nine hours and then trying to cover it up.

The 24-page report concluded that hospice staffers at the Bay Pines VA hospital failed to provide appropriate post-mortem care to the veteran’s body, Fox 13 Tampa reports.

The report found hospice staff put the veteran’s body in a hallway and left it there for an unspecified time, the station reported. Staff then put the veteran’s body in the shower room and did not “check on the status of the decedent…for over nine hours.”

This needs to stop and be rooted out, as this phenomenom is occuring too often at the expense of veterans and their families.
