WASHINGTON (April 9, 2014) --The American Legion’s national commander, Daniel M. Dellinger, told Congress at a hearing today that Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) leaders must be held accountable for mistakes that result in needless deaths at its medical facilities.
“Patient deaths are tragic -- preventable deaths are unacceptable,” Dellinger told the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. “But failure to disclose safety information -- or worse -- to cover up mistakes, is unforgivable, and The American Legion will not sit quietly by while some VA employees cover up the truth – and the VA shouldn’t, either.”
