This was a center for abuse and neglect and this vet was further abused and definitely neglected by the very people charged with his care. Where is the common sense? VA and civilian facilities which permit these types of neglect and abuse to veterans or our elderly should be shut down and the employees involved should be prosecuted.

A similar situation occurred here in Georgia a couple of years ago at a civilian nursing home when an elderly resident was having an apparent heart attack. Employees at the nursing home were prohibited from administering emergency treatment including CPR on residents even when the resident did not have a DNR order. Emergency treatment could only be provided by outside medical providers. However, treatment for the elderly resident was delayed because the nursing home also had a policy where residents could not be taken for outside care (including emergency care) without first getting approval from the nursing home doctor or the resident's family member designated to make healthcare decisions on the resident's behalf. The nursing home could not reach the doctor or family member. After waiting over an hour since the onset of the heart attack, the nursing home finally reached the doctor who gave approval to call an ambulance. Unfortunately, the resident died before emergency personnel arrived.

I believe it, I currently go to the Bonham Tx VA, and I run into Vets all the time that drive a few hours from OK due to the fact that they are unsatisfied with the VAs there.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
