And no one has been fired for this totally outrageous incident.

Via Fox News.

An internal report blames staffers at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Florida for leaving the body of a deceased veteran to decompose in a shower for nine hours and then trying to cover it up.

The 24-page report concluded that hospice staffers at the Bay Pines VA hospital failed to provide appropriate post-mortem care to the veteran’s body, Fox 13 Tampa reports.

The report found hospice staff put the veteran’s body in a hallway and left it there for an unspecified time, the station reported. Staff then put the veteran’s body in the shower room and did not “check on the status of the decedent…for over nine hours.”

The report also found that a staff member then “falsely documented” the incident, Fox 13 reported….

“The report details a total failure on the part of the Department of Veterans Affairs and an urgent need for greater accountability,” Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Fla., told the station. “Unsurprisingly, not a single VA employee has been fired following this incident, despite a clear lack of concern and respect for the veteran. The men and women who sacrificed on behalf of our nation deserve better.”….

    For me, the biggest promise Trump made during the election campaign was the V.A.

    Whoever gets nominated needs to move heaven and earth to get the Congress to change the rules for termination of any and all Civil Service employees, pencil pushing bureaucrats, losers, misfits, quota hires, do nothings, et al. And any Senator or Congressman that stands in the way should be defeated the next election cycle.

    Relative to the confluence of Veterans and health care, the GOPe is starting to sound like the worst of Vietnam though in a 180 degree direction. Instead of, Destroy the village to save it, they’re implying, save Ocare to destroy it. Declare defeat and get out.
