Management at Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers in California selected and coached employees on exactly what to tell investigators about wait time manipulation, according to new inspector general reports.

One of the medical support assistants said he was afraid to tell inspectors anything because a supervisor was in the interview with him.
