She says report's findings “substantiate the troubling concerns my office has heard from current and former employees and patients"
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) released the following statement regarding the release of findings from phase one of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) investigation at the Tomah VA Medical Center.
“These initial findings substantiate the troubling concerns my office has heard from current and former employees and patients at the Tomah VA,” said Baldwin.
“As the investigation builds on this troubling evidence and moves forward, it is critical that it be conducted in a detailed, thorough, and transparent manner. I also believe that the final result of this investigation must include appropriate corrective action that brings accountability to those responsible for the problems at the Tomah VA and puts in place solutions to prevent these problems and tragedies from ever happening again.”
