An internal Veterans Affairs audit released Monday said tens of thousands of newly returning veterans wait at least 90 days for medical care, while even more who signed up in the VA system over the past 10 years never got an immediate appointment they requested.
The review provides a more complete picture of widespread problems at the agency’s health care facilities — as reported by CNN over the past seven months — than preliminary findings last month that led to the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki.
“This data shows the extent of the systemic problems we face, problems that demand immediate actions,” said acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson, who took over after Shinseki stepped aside.
