Now it’s the Veterans Administration hospital in Durham, NC, that’s come to light.
Hanna and Stephen McMenamin posted photos of two aging veterans in the hospital’s waiting room who were in obvious pain and getting no help, for hours. One man was having trouble staying in his wheel chair, and another wound up lying on the floor because he kept asking for a place to lie down and getting no response. The second veteran finally got a response—to make him get back in his waiting room chair.
Medical Center Director DeAnne Seekins finally reacted, after the McMenamins posted their photos:
It is an honor to serve America’s heroes and actions that do not align with our core values will not be tolerated. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality care to the Veterans we serve and being responsive to our patient’s needs. Veterans deserve nothing less.
Really? When are you going to start living up to these pretty words? When was the last time you left your office and actually walked the floor to see how things were going? You would have seen this.
Veteranos Administratio delende est.
