Udall calls for VA to broaden waiting list probe
Question of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico is calling for federal authorities to broaden their investigation into alleged secret waiting lists at veterans hospitals.
Udall says he’s outraged at the ongoing allegations that the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care System and possibly others were covering up the extent of their waiting lists while veterans died waiting for appointments.
In a letter to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, Udall called for VA officials to expand their investigation to facilities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
Arizona, New Mexico and part of Texas fall under the same Veterans Integrated Service Network.
Udall says the New Mexico VA Health Care System is in the hiring process for a new director.
He says that person must know whether similar management failures occurred within New Mexico’s system.
