VA Incompetence and Malpractice
For the past 8.5 years, VA doctors have been prescribing a certain medication. Now they have decided they will no longer prescribe it because of its life-threatening side effects.
At no time during those 8.5 years did doctors ever hint at life-threatening side effects. Not once. So, what's really going on?
Are doctors exaggerating the dangers for some reason to excuse their sudden change of heart? If so, that is a form of malpractice.
Were doctors aware of the life-threatening side effects and just didn't bother to advise me? That is gross, massive malpractice by VA. Were they unaware of the life-threatening side effects? They are supposed to know. That is massive VA malpractice.
What else are doctors now prescribing that has life-threatening side effects? Nothing that I know of, but that doesn't mean anything, obviously. How can any vet have any respect for or confidence in any VA doctor, knowing now that they have proved themselves so incompetent and dangerous?
I see a lot of posts on social media sites by people who claim they support our troops and care about our veterans. It always gives me a bit of a boost when I see those, and I believe they are sincere.
Those of you who do care about veterans, please contact your senators and representatives and tell them how urgent it is for all vets to be allowed to use the medical providers of their choice. Some vets already have that right, based on how far they live from a VA facility. We vets desperately need them to extend that to all vets. We are not getting competent care at VA facilities, and VA is not going to change. Not for the better, not any time soon. I don't think VA doctors are capable of ever becoming competent and worthy of respect. They will never regain the confidence of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who are suffering right now because of VA malpractice.
