Alterations Of Medical Records


Recommended Posts

In a strange twist of fate, as my right arm is in a splint temp cast, I've been looking through my records to pass time as I can't fly my RC s while in this temp cast. Although I won't get into the specifics of what was omitted, I have come across two documents which have been altered and are missing the physician's notes. I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression since 2010. Private docs even mention possible PTSD, however , in the VA copy of my Cfile those hand written notes are omitted, actually covered up in white as if purposely trying to hide something. I kept looking and found that my LOD for anxiety and depression had two copies. One with hand written notes and the other with the same exact information except the hand notes were not there. WTFO. Did someone who was trying to alter my documents screw up and leave the original and altered records still in the file? Curious indeed. I forwarded the info to my attorney, but it looks like I am going to have to go through my file a couple of dozen more times and see what else has been doctored up. Scandalous indeed.

PS Did I mention how hard it is to type with one hand. : ) This cast thing for 8 weeks is gonna suck big ones.

Might be time to schedule an appointment with the RO to look at your C-file firsthand and see what new dirty tricks are afoot.

Will VA alter records ? You bet they will.

I fixed them and was able to determine a diagnosis that was crossed out.

It took me about 17 years to get that diagnosis awarded.

Are you SCed for the right arm and needed some surgery on it?

Maybe not , but if so, have you applied for Temp Convalesence?
