I was not aware of this until I spoke with a local MD. If a Med school graduate is unable to obtain a license to practice in the US, they can go abroad or gain employment at the VA. There are requirements at the VA but they are much easier to meet than those for state licensing. After a period of time the VA grants full licensing and then they can go out into the private sector. I got this info from a retired MD who teaches at an area medical school.

This is not the entire problem at VA but it does not help.

The present problems are related to cleanliness and procedures.

This brought to mind a (Dr.) Michael Swango who killed his patients across the US and in a couple of third world countries and who, as I recall, also practiced at a VA hospital. He Is presently in prison in the US.

Patch,

I read yesterday that they already have 4 HIV positive patients all possibly stemming from a dirty colonoscopy machine! Scary! People are trying to do things to make sure they are healthy they are doing "what they are supposed to be donig" and it hurts them in the end

I know. I never used VA because of the stories in the 80's and on. If one is hurt bad enough in the military, they have no choice as they can not get regular insurance.

It is frightening. Failing to sanitize equipment is basic and failure to do so should be criminal!
