“I said two "hospitals," not clinics. Driving 147 miles to a hospital is not a reasonable distance. If I live in NJ, I should not need to travel so far when living in America's most densely populated state. But the larger point is that there are insufficient facilities for vets across the country.”

Bob Shuttleworth on Jun 2, 2014 at 19:19:36

“I can certainly agree with you that the VA needs more and better facilities. No argument. AND that the facilities that exist are overworked. So why, only a few days ado, did the Republican Congress deny the requested funds for the VA that the President proposed?”

“As someone in the VA system, I can attest to the long wait times and the under staffing. NJ has two VA hospitals, both up North. None in South Jersey. Procedures are scheduled months in advance. Psychological counseling is inadequate. 30 minutes every couple of months unless you claim to be immediately suicidal. Shortages of facilities and workers is a funding issue. So if you are in Congress and prefer spending money on munitions rather medical care, don't claim to care about veterans.”

“Funding is an excuse. My wife worked VA as a PTSD nurse supervisor for 15 years. She came home late many a night to deal with issues that occurred on her unit. No extra pay or time. Too many people working who should not be, too old, poor health and poor experience. Too many people poor attitude, union protected and drug abusers. Because of union rules it was impossible for her to fire people sleeping on the job, stealing patient medication, and just unqualified personnel. Frequently getting into trouble resulted in being transferred to day shift where these trouble makers could be monitored closer. Now you have to watch patients and staff. For all of those who say put veterans in because vets know how to treat vets, the drug abuser was a vet. Sorry to say too many vets feel entitled so this is not necessarily a good answer. Setting up schedules just like they do in regular hospitals, 6 patients an hour and holding the doctors to this type of regiment is how you get this backlog cleaned up. I will have to say Topeka's VA was noticeable more friendly when I went in to get blood work I need monthly. But I have had 1 problem and I called and got it corrected within a day.”

Bob Shuttleworth on May 31, 2014 at 12:29:27

“There is a large VA Medical Facility in Philadelphia, and community based VA Centers in Brick Township and in Cape May (about as far south in New Jersey as you can get). There are also a number of Facilities in Maryland, all within reasonable driving distance from South Jersey.I don't know what your personal condition is, but apparently there are VA Facilities in the Southern New Jersey area that you can access.”

“And the US HR has voted over 50 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act which instead of acting on the apauling situation in the VA. My brother went in at Fort Dicks, NJ, served 14 years in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand got out. He had been to the VA before, got out on temp, was supposed to go back in and while waiting I saw him on Saturday @ 4pm, 8pm and the next morning I saw him and he was a stiff.”

“Perhaps if they didn't work bankers hours, the VA might get a tad more accomplished.”

“It's not every VA hospital. Here in Kentucky the wait isn't more than 30 minutes, appointments are easy to get and not made months in advance and the care is exceptional. My husband needed eye surgery that the VA hospital wan't equipped to handle so they referred him to a specialist who called the next day. His surgery was scheduled for 2 weeks later. That's great service!”

“As someone who closely with the private sector health care providers I can tell you staff shortages and lack of funding is not only something the VA has to deal with.”

The first person to comment thought I was dissing the book, that I was a 'right winger'. I'm saying that all you have to do is open your eyes to understand the gist of the book. I think the author is essentially correct. Is that better? It's a hassle to spell it out like that. A lot of other people understood exactly what I was saying.”
