(El Centro VA Clinic flagged)…..They were named in a recent Audit.
The US Department of Veteran’s Affairs audit was released Monday. Among the list of clinics flagged as trouble spots, two were in the San Diego VA Healthcare System. One in Escondido and the other in El Centro. The audit expressed concern over patient scheduling at the two clinics. The report says while established patients are scheduled for appointments in a timely fashion, new patients are made to wait up to 44 days. The audit is the result of the scandal at the Veteran’s Administration, in which some patients died while waiting for their appointments at the Phoenix, Arizona VA Hospital.
