    The main problem with the VA is that it's filled with civil servants, which is an oxymoron these days. Many of them simply don't give a shit and do the barest minimum while scooping up their fat paychecks and bennies. As is too often the case with government employees.

    I worked in a VA hospital for over three years and so my opinion isn't without reason. I also had some treatment there on occasion as an employee. Once I had an ear infection. The appointment took two months. When the doctor asked how long I had it he said "only two months?" in a casual indifferent way.

    He prescribed some ear drops so I went down to the pharmacy and handed over the script. And wait. And waited. Four hours later with almost no one in the waiting room, many having come and gone and me asking about it I was told to wait some more. I walked out without my medication. But for all I know it could have eaten my ear drum. You people that want government in medicine are clueless.

    Tomah has been mentioned in this thread, and "bad paper" cases should be examined with much more rigour, exemplified in the Brian Rossell / PTSD suicide. Note that "bad paper" can be created from within a medical installation. The "bad paper" victim cannot prove that the prescription was stolen outright from them, though if they oppose the theft, they will be stigmatized as "bad paper." Predatory capitalism's movements of extreme violence (the thieves get paid twice) is a very special delirium and stigmatizes swiftly: once stigmatized as "bad paper" the victim-scapegoat may have problems in choosing a quality doctor or future problems with medical insurance.

    I heard that they hired a guy from Mexico and he made a error and thought the shredder was the copy machine.
