VA Hospital may have infected more Vets, again.

Tom's Journal.

The Vietnam Crew Memorial Act
From the President of Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association, John Shafer

Chairman Miller is the last hurdle to get this bill to the floor. Below are the Speaker's, Majority Leader's, and Chairman Miller's numbers.
Speaker Ryan: 202-225-0600
Majority Leader McCarthy: 202-225-4000
Chairman Miller: 850-479-1183
We need our members to call the three phone numbers above and leave messages (they won't pick up on the weekend), but leave a message similar to the following:
There are many families who still quietly mourn the loss of loved one’s killed operating helicopters in the Vietnam War. Their pain and sense of loss remains today, some forty-one years after the last helicopter crewman died in Southeast Asia.
Placing the Vietnam Helicopter Crewmember Memorial within Arlington National Cemetery will ease the sorrow and loss of the many, knowing the nation has recognized and honored the sacrifice within this place of honor. It is the right thing to do, now, for the nearly 5,000 helicopter crewmembers who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to our great nation.

Hello  Friends,
     If there is one thing that really corks me,  it is the constant betrayal of Veterans' confidences, lies, deceit, and messing with our 'already short life span, and benefits !'   And I will leave no stone unturned in disseminating the bare, shameful truth of the frequent matters of cutting corners when it comes to giving we Veterans the care that we were promised.   This is also why Mr. Trump got the "Vet's Vote."    It's bad enough to steal the Veterans' money, health benefits... and giving it to illegal aliens, especially the Islamic oinks who sneak over here via Obama's 'underground rail road,' seeking to destroy our country !!   I am sure that all true Patriots will want to share this news, far and wide,  today.

Warm Regards,
Tom  Schuckman

BREAKING – VA Hospital May Have Infected Up To 600 Veterans With THIS

Nearly 600 veterans who have been receiving treatment at the VA Medical Hospital in Wisconsin may have been infected with terrible diseases because of violations in infection control protocol.

These diseases include HIV and Hepatitis B and C. This VA center is in Tomah, Wisconsin, and they are now having to notify 592 veterans who may have come into contact with these viruses, as per the Federalist Papers.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, the director of his medical center, Victoria Brahm, stated that the facility’s dentist used his own equipment, cleaned it, and then reused it. This is also a violation of VA regulations.
One of the biggest requirements in a VA hospital, or any hospital really, is using sterile and disposable equipment. And this unsanitary practice had been going on for an entire year without anyone noticing.

In fact, the only reason it was discovered was because a dental assistant noticed it when someone was getting a filling. The assistant did the right thing and reported it, and thank goodness because an ignorance of sanitary procedures can lead to, well… people getting infected with diseases!
The dentist was, of course, removed from “patient care” and is now in an “administrative role,” which is merely a slap on the wrist. That dentist should be fired, honestly! But the VA can’t be picky with who works for them.

The case will be taken to an inspector general for “assessment of any criminal charges…It was purposeful that he was violating VA regulations,” Brahm said. “During all of the orientation, he used all of our equipment. He used it appropriately, so it was very purposeful from what we found in our investigation that he knew exactly what he was doing and preferred to use his own equipment against procedure.”
Brahm claimed there are more problems, but they are working to fix them so that they can continue to provide quality care to the men and women who served in the military. If anyone is infected, the VA will provide treatment of the diseases they inflicted.

To many veterans, this is not the least bit surprising. Few people know the reality of walking into any VA medical center, and honestly, it can be a very scary place. In the service, it is rumored that the doctors supplied for military hospitals are the ones who barely passed their MCATs and are substandard at best.
In the waiting rooms, patients wait for hours to be seen, and when they finally are, they’re either given pain pills or a slap on the back saying they’re completely fine.

They tell you the pain is in your head and then slap a couple addictive pain pills in your hand. And people wonder why our veterans have addiction issues.
Our VA hospitals are in sore need of rebooting because they are dismal, but for many veterans, it is their only option for health care. These poor services and doctors skipping the proper sanitary procedures—this is all that many of them can afford. And it needs to change. With Donald
