(PHOENIX) Another Phoenix VA employee whistle blower has spoken out about more criminal actions at the Phoenix VA. Pauline DeWenter, was a records clerk at the embattled Phoenix VA and stated that “Records of dead veterans were changed or physically altered, some even in recent weeks, to hide how many people died while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA hospital” [pull_quote_left]“Records of dead veterans were changed or physically altered, some even in recent weeks, to hide how many people died while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA hospital”[/pull_quote_left]
Pauline Dewenter further stated that “deceased” notes on patient files were removed so Veterans who died would not be counted as having died while waiting for care. Dewenter is not just some VA clerk, she knows the entire scandal and watched it happen. She told CNN that for nearly 1 year she was instructed by supervisors to manage the alleged “secret waiting list”, where veterans names were placed while they waited for months or years for care that needed immediate care.
These allegations are so severe and extreme that it goes straight to the top, President Obama’s right hand man Eric Shinseki received these orders from the White House. President Obama needs to be held accountable for yet another failure and scandal. When is enough, enough? Its time we the people ensure the buck stops here
