Our veterans deserve the very best. There is no question about that. The sacrifices they make preserve our freedom as Americans.
Everyone knows there are problems with the Veterans Administration, but now there are photos circulating from a VA hospital in Durham, North Carolina that show the VA is truly a mess.
They show veterans being treated like dirt!
Here is what the wife said about the photos, particularly the man in the center and the right:
This man sat in the chair for probably about 15 minutes before he was told he had to get up immediately. Upon being approached by the nurse (who was extremely rude to him), he told her he could not sit up and he needed to lay down. She completely disregarded him and demanded he go sit in the waiting room area, leaving the recliner completely empty. Upon seeing this, and seeing how rude the nurse was being, my husband approached the nurse and asked why this man was not allowed to stay in the recliner given that my husband had been sitting in it for 30 plus minutes. The nurse refused to provide any explanation or even her name, and stormed off while this man was still struggling. The man then asked multiple times for a place to lean back or lay down, and was completely disregarded by the nurse. Eventually after being completely neglected, he laid on the floor.
Of course VA officials are saying they reviewed security tapes and claim the veterans were given “excellent care.” Judging by these pictures, I say that’s a load of B.S.
Knowing many veterans, I can tell you that none of them have ever referred to VA facilities as “excellent.”
If this angers you as much as it angers me, please share this with others. Let them know that our veterans deserve better than this!
