More chicanery in the VA system, and at the Phoenix VA hospital in particular.
(From The Daily Caller)
According to internal documents, Phoenix VA hospital director Glen Grippen told an investigative team sent by departmental headquarters to leave facility premises and said that he “decides what’s going to happen around here.”
Department of Veterans Affairs headquarters sent the team out to Phoenix in order to initiate reforms at the controversial facility, following revelations of the manipulated waitlist scandal in early 2014. The team quickly learned that the hospital was not only entirely uninterested, but actively sought to interfere with the investigation and ignore any proposals from the team, The Arizona Republic reports.
