Death By Government Update: Hundreds of Vets Died or Injured Under VA Care, Data Shows

NBC News reports:
Hundreds of veterans suffered harm or died from medical mistakes termed "adverse events" while receiving care from the Department of Veterans Affairs last year, according to new data obtained by NBC.

Through a Freedom of Information Act request, NBC found 575 of the estimated 6 million patients annually treated by the department were affected by adverse events, up 74 percent from 330 in 2010. The VA did not disclose details or individual outcomes.
Just a reminder, under socialism even well paid people lack incentives to do a good job.
