WFXT-TV Investigates Mishandled Veterans’ Medical Records (WFXT-TV)

Topic: Military-Focused Initiatives

Cox Media’s Fox affiliate WFXT-TV Boston aired "Veterans’ Records, Medicine, Mishandled" on June 6. Veterans’ protected health information, lab results, doctors’ notes and medicine were mishandled 37 times by the VA Boston Healthcare System in the last three years. In one case, a disabled veteran requested three years of medical records, but was sent someone else’s files. Massachusetts lawmakers are now calling for federal reform.
