In 2009, the Department of Veterans Affairs contacted more than 10,000 U.S. military veterans who had received medical care at VA facilities in three states, notifying them that there was a possibility that they could have been exposed to infectious viruses during VA colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures -- because of problems with the configuration and cleaning of some of the equipment used. Five years later, after receiving a response from the VA to our Freedom of Information Act request, the NBC News Investigative Unit and MSNBC's Ronan Farrow Daily show entered into an investigative collaboration to follow-up on this story. We discovered that the majority of those claims were listed as “denied by [VA] regional counsel.”
