A Troubled Investigation Into The Manchester VA

Jan 30, 2018

The Department of Veterans Affairs launched an investigation into allegations of substandard care at the Manchester VA last year, after whistleblowers from the hospital went to the Boston Globe's Spotlight team.

Now, a new report says that the investigation ignored many of the complaints leveled by the whistleblowers, and at least one physician who was accused of poor care has found a job working with veterans elsewhere. We talk with Peter Biello, reporter and host of All Things Considered for NHPR, about the latest. 

This segment will air live from 9:40 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 31st, and again at 7:40 p.m. The audio will be available shortly after 10 a.m.
