Description

The VA continues to struggle to deliver timely, quality, healthcare to veterans despite the publicity and subsequent reforms initiated by the 2014 scandal. Case in point:The VA medical system in St. Cloud, Minnesota. It's where 30 year old Ross Cameron bounced from one physician to another as he desperately tried to get help for a deep depression and PTSD. He wife says he never got the full attention he needed. Then one day he took his own life by driving into a tree at a hundred miles an hour. The St. Cloud VA is also where Doug Larson nearly died because a provider made a huge mistake. This series of reports documents the turmoil within the hospital which triggered an exodus of physicians and nurses, and the impact the staffing shortages are having on veterans healthcare.
