Here in Helena at Fort Harrison VA hospital we have a new wing added that was meant for the mental care of those needing it. It was brand new, the head of staff here allowed it to sit empty for approximately 1 year and complaints to higher ups in the system were not responded to. Finally some one acted, and the head of staff who in my opinion should have been fired was sent on to Denver to take on a similar program. Kind of fits in with the Phoenix problem.

I have had some good experiences with the VA, but mostly bad. I think the VA should be an insurance system, but not a sole provider. When I have problems with certain doctors or nurses in the system, I have little recourse.

When you have a problem with the staff have you gone to the Patient Arbitration?

I have been to several different VA hospitals since the early 70's and have found that the all vary in quality of service. But things have gotten better over the years.
I now go to the VA in Albuquerque, NM and find that it is the best!!!!!!!!!
