ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A newspaper reports that an investigation at the Veterans Affairs medical center in Albuquerque began months ago into whether schedulers were ordered to falsify patient appointment records.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://ow.ly/wVgCS ) reports that the VA Office of Inspector General’s investigation began before similar allegations related to appointment records and treatment delays surfaced in connection with VA facilities in other places such as Phoenix.

Democratic Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico says he has called for a thorough investigation of the allegations involving the New Mexico facility.

Udall say he’s outraged that there may have been attempts to manipulate the scheduling system to cover up the extent of delays for appointments.

Udall has set up a special link on his office website to take information about the Albuquerque VA.
