ALL of the veterans do NOT feel that they receive “excellent” care. Isn’t it great to come to work, get on the clock, then go to breakfast? I was given a narcotic pain killer and then told to drive myself to St Mary’s by a sorry ER doctor who lectured several patients about “what and what is not an emergency.” The Chief of Staff thinks that this issue is so important that he cannot give me a tim to see him for weeks. None of which received care. Staff have absolutely lied in order to back up other staff. Supervisors do NOT know what a “Doctors Consult” looks like. None of the many issues (complaints) that I have brought to the Patient Advocate over the past 6 years can be found, except one. And then we see here that the staff are the ones being mistreated and the vets receive GREAT CARE AND TREATMENT. What a crock. The advocate stated that complaints are written up, sent to supervisors and that is the extent of it. The paharmacy has a brand new 2d counseling area and yet the waiting room is full and only one counseling area is open. Are you kidding me? Speaking with the patient advocate last week I was actually told that “I was trying to look good.” What? I was also told that the hospital works like the “military.” What? Many would have been dispatched were they in the military. But because they are US Govt employees they are not dismissible. There, are, however, many dedicated professionals that are drug down by the pee poor ones as well as upper management.

GOOD OLE BOYS and GALS. Been saying it for a long time——reelecting the same ones over and over and over again. What? As if they are the only ones that could possibly solve or run anything. But, hey, we are gonna have a million dollar theatre that we can all hob nob in.

Jerry is spot on, VA has had problems for over 25 years that I know of. Unfortunately the ACA under Odrama has given us all the same system of poor healthcare. I fear all this will receive is lip service as it has in the past. Giving a damn is not in the political arena, only appearing to.

Country Jam is now being run by a new company- Town Square Media so I’m guessing that is why Hilltop didn’t get the usual donated tickets.
