MANCHESTER, N. H. – A Veterans Affairs report finds that the care in the New Hampshire medical center accused last year of poor conditions to improve.
The report Thursday found that the Manchester VA medical center received a score of 3, that was 2 years ago, soon after allegations were published in the Boston Globe about paragraph care.
Whistle-blowers complained about a fly-infested operating room, surgical instruments that are not sterilized, and patients with a spine disorder that is not treated properly. Top officials were removed.
The last report of the medical center significantly reduced the time it took for veterans to get appointments, expanded suicide prevention services and hired more staff.
The staff find the facility a better place to work than a year ago, when it ranked 127 129 customised facilities.
