Report: VA Hired Doctors With Malpractice Claims, Felony Convictions Against Them [Merged]

Recommended Posts

The Department of Veterans Affairs has carried on with the practice of hiring doctors with malpractice claims and felony convictions in their backgrounds.

A USA Today investigation has found that the VA’s hiring process for physicians may not be as thorough as it seems. The hiring process entails license verification and reference-checking, but it appears as though VA officials have some amount of discretion when they discover medical licensing problems, malpractice or felony convictions.

In other words, VA officials can simply disregard sordid pasts and approve hiring of questionable doctors, anyway.

USA TODAY Investigation: VA knowingly hires doctors with past malpractice claims, discipline for poor care

VA knowingly hires clinicians with problem pasts

Neurosurgeon John Henry Schneider racked up more than a dozen malpractice claims and settlements in two states, including cases alleging he made surgical mistakes that left patients maimed, paralyzed or dead.

He was accused of costing one patient bladder and bowel control after placing spinal screws incorrectly, he allegedly left another paralyzed from the waist down after placing a device improperly in his spinal canal. The state of Wyoming revoked his medical license after another surgical patient died.

Schneider then applied for a job earlier this year at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Iowa City, Iowa. He was forthright in his application about the license revocation and other malpractice troubles.

These doctors should be moved to a new clinic on Capitol Hill (the new name - Congressional Medical Clinic) where they treat Congressmen and Senators and the politicians must see them and no one else!

Its a common practice and has been for some years, state to state. You ground bones in missouri to make enough to break into california or florida and getting a license in CA was not impeded by medicaid claims in MO. Many pack up and leave town when "fad of the $eason" has been shown to cause bad cancer or they have killed somebody and want to be unavailable. The va is doing the same thing states and the fed do, despicable or not
