Know We Know What Happens To The Mail We Send The Varo

Geez, and this is just at the Baltimore VARO...

What We Found

A team of benefits inspectors dispatched to
the Baltimore VARO from June 21 to
27, 2014, substantiated the conditions
reported. We determined a supervisor had
inappropriately stockpiled about
8,000 documents in an office.

Back in the 90's the VA allowed RO's to take files home with them and work from their home. Needless to say not much got done using that method.

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

We are still only looking at the tip of the iceberg. The current problems of the VAROs and VAMCs are not a few isolated incidents. The problems are systemic.

The VA needs a massive overhaul. Even if they could magically eliminate the backlog tomorrow, claims would be backlogged again in a few years because the problems that created the backlog will still exist and no real solutions are being implemented to address the problems. JMO
