Probe of U.S. Veterans Affairs facilities expands: report

Shinseki addresses reporters after testifying before a Senate Veterans Affairs Committee hearing on VA health care, on Capitol Hill in WashingtonThe network cited the VA’s Office of Inspector General, adding that the inspector general told a Senate committee last week there were 10 facilities under investigation. VA officials could not be reached for immediate comment. The allegations that delays in treatment at veterans’ hospitals could have led to otherwise preventable deaths has sparked a growing political scandal, including calls for the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki. The secretary was grilled at a Senate hearing last week where Democrats joined Republicans to demand stronger action to fix problems after officials at VA medical facilities in Phoenix were accused of covering up long wait times for patients, including 40 who died while awaiting care.
