Question

"April 18, 2012

Office of Inspector General

TO: Director, VA Sunshine Healthcare Network (10N8)

SUBJECT: Healthcare Inspection – Suicide of a Veteran Enrolled in VA Supported

Housing, Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, Bay Pines, Florida

Purpose

The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) Office of Healthcare Inspections conducted

an evaluation in response to an anonymous complaint alleging inadequate social work

case management. The complainant alleged that a veteran in his seventies living in VA

Supported Housing (VASH) in the Port Charlotte, Florida area committed suicide, that

the veteran was known to be at high risk for suicide, and that the veteran had no contact

with a social work case manager (CM) for months prior to his death. The complainant

also alleged that the VASH program supervisor only visited the Port Charlotte

Community Based Outpatient Clinic (the clinic) once since being assigned to the

position, and told one CM to “audit himself and get his charts straight” after learning of

the suicide. The purpose of this inspection is to evaluate whether the allegations have

merit."

If the war in Afghanistan winds down faster than is planned I think one of the first things over the side will be improved veterans care. War will be out of the headlines. I did read that survey in Parade mag that said one of the worst five jobs in the nation is enlisted military. Where does that put vets?
