Federal report shows concerns over Madison's VA Hospital

Posted:
MADISON (AP) -

A new federal report finds Madison's Veterans Hospital provided deficient care for a patient who killed himself after being discharged last year. The VA Office of the Inspector General found hospital staff did not hold the man for an additional 72 hours, as they could have. U.S. Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson requested the review. Madison VA Director John Rohrer says the hospital has started coordinating more with family members and county crisis services before veterans are discharged.
