MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Martha Roby says the latest report on the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System is consistent with what she’s been hearing about phony medical practices and the Veterans Administration inspectors not being aggressive about complaints.

The Republican congresswoman from Montgomery was responding to a report from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel that a pulmonologist at the Central Alabama VA in Montgomery cut and pasted notes from previous patient visits to make them look like current readings. VA inspectors determined the records were not handled properly but said there was no evidence of anyone’s health being endangered.

Roby called it “obviously egregious behavior,” and she asked how anyone could think that falsifying more than 1,200 pulmonary records does not endanger patients.
