On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
A scathing Inspector General report in April detailed a series of lapses at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in D.C. The findings were so serious that an initial report was made public out of concern that patient care was being compromised. The hospital quickly replaced its director with an interim chief, but questions remain about care at the flagship VA hospital in the nation’s capital. We speak to the interim director, as well as a military reporter and an advocate with the American Legion.
