  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

When Malpractice Leads To

Question

http://lawmedconsultant.com/1370/lexington-va-hosp-nurse-awaiting-trial-for-murder-of-patient

“Patients and staff alike have died under suspicious circumstances in the ICU at the Lexington, KY Veterans Affairs Medical Center. One nurse is out on bail awaiting trial for the murder of a patient who had been expected to die at any moment, and another whose body was found in a staff restroom locked from the inside remains a death of undetermined cause.”

Berta,

Thanks for the post.

The last part of this story really got to me.

" Eventually, it was determined that Chain’s family had nothing to do with the death, and Whitt admitted that she had administered all of the extra doses.The indictment says Whitt “willfully, deliberately, maliciously and with premeditation and malice aforethought” injected Chain with “lethal levels of morphine,” killing him. If found guilty, she could be sentenced to life in prison and fined $250,000, and face the possibility of five years’ supervised release, according to the indictment."

I love this part too,

" If found guilty, she could be sentenced to life in prison and fined $250,000,"

heck if you get life in prison how are you to possibly pay the $250,000 - I guess the goobermint could grab any assets she may have.

This just makes me question why the tax payers have to foot the bill for the prosecution and defense of the crime.

Hell - she admitted to it, all there should have to be is a date for sentencing.

Our judicial system is just as poor as the VBA system.

JMHO.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
