ABQ VA hospital under investigation

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – For the first time, the Albuquerque VA hospital admitted Friday it’s been the subject of two internal reviews regarding how they schedule patient appointments.

The interim New Mexico VA Director met with leaders from around the state Friday and confirmed some employees from the national VA system were at the Albuquerque VA last week, interviewing employees about what’s going on.

A separate internal review has been going on since the fall. But several leaders are calling for an outside group to investigate things

The Albuquerque VA is accused of delaying patient appointments for veterans and manipulating data about those wait times.

Several VA hospitals around the country are facing similar allegations.
