LITTLE ROCK, arkansas. – A former pathologist has denied that he was impaired from service in the middle of an Arkansas Veterans Affairs hospital research to more than 30,000 of his cases dates back to 2005.
Robert Morris Levy of Fayetteville, says the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks fired him as head of the Pathology by a DUI that was eventually dismissed.
The hospital has said Levy was twice found to be impaired on duty and so terminated him in April.
At a town hall Monday morning, the VA told a crowd of veterans that 3,000 cases have now been reviewed, but not an update on the number of missed diagnoses.
Earlier, the hospital said that of the 911 cases, they had found 7 missed diagnoses and a possible death.
