VA SCANDAL EXPLODES ON OBAMA : Acting VA Secretary Gibson Says 18 Vets On Phoenix Wait List Died

Acting Secretary of Veterans Affairs Sloan Gibson on Thursday said 18 veterans died while waiting for appointments with the Phoenix VA Health Care System.


Veterans now commit suicide 22 times EVERY DAY
Speaking from the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix, which has become the epicenter of the scandal over patient wait times, Gibson said the 18 deaths were confirmed through a review of 1,700 veterans who had been placed on so-called "secret lists."

Gibson said he had details on 14 of the deaths and it appeared most had contacted the VA for "end of life care."

"None of that excuses us," Gibson said. "These lists were not being worked -- inexcusable."


Gibson said if any of the 18 deaths is found to have been tied to delays or bogus wait-time stats that the agency will disclose that and discipline the responsible employees.

Gibson emphasized the embattled agency is working to mend the "massive erosion of trust" among veterans due to the failures exposed in the nationwide VA health care scandal. He said the VA would take important steps next week to "improve communication, openness and transparency," including:

- the release Monday of detailed results of an internal VA audit;

- the release of "complete" patient wait-time data for each VA center nationwide;

- and efforts to accelerate care by using "purchased care."

"We have to work to earn back the trust of each veteran and we'll do that one veteran at a time," Gibson said.


The visit came amid new allegations and revelations that VA facilities have falsified records on patient wait times, a practice that the Office of Inspector General says in some cases endangered the health and lives of veterans.



In Phoenix, investigators concluded that up to 1,700 veterans had been placed on so-called "secret lists" and were not even in line for medical appointments they've requested.

Gibson announced Wednesday that the VA has contacted nearly all of those Arizona veterans, and is working diligently to get them doctor visits within 30 days.


Gibson was joined by the Phoenix VA Health Care System's acting boss, Steve Young, who was appointed last month after Director Sharon Helman and two top aides were placed on administrative leave.

Before Shinseki left, he said the VA was in the process of removing senior administrators in Phoenix. Gibson confirmed Thursday that process is continuing.


During his visit, Gibson also was to meet with medical center staffers, veterans service organizations, members of the Arizona congressional delegation and the media.

Gibson was appointed acting secretary on May 30, following the pressured resignation of embattled Secretary Eric Shinseki.




Prior to joining the VA, Gibson was president and chief executive officer of the United Services Organizations (USO). He previously spent more than 20 years in banking in the South.

Gibson is a 1975 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he earned Airborne and Ranger qualifications and served as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army.
