    Just frivilous lawsuits. Tort reform will take care of the ambulance chasers.

    Dr's are going out of business over the high cost of malpractice insurance.

    We sure do know how to take care of our veterans in this country, don't we?

    Disgraceful.

    Yep the fact that we even have a need for volunteer organizations that help disabled vets work the maze to get the care they are owed is totally disgraceful.

    uscitizen, no patient can sue a VA hospital or its employees for bad care. As it is, these vets have no recourse. Personally, I think that should change.

    But it seems to me the first order of business is to vacate the licenses of anyone involved in this debacle. AT LEAST let's stop infecting our vets.

    This can't be. Malcontent told me that you could only get HIV from dirty, filthy, gay sex.

    In all seriousness, this is a travesty and I hope the people responsible are held accountable.
