BALTIMORE (AP) — A Veterans Administration inspection of quality of care issues at Maryland’s veterans’ health care system founds delays in access occurred with a patient.
The inspection report was released Tuesday by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General. The inspection was requested by Sen. Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat.
The report says delays in access for care occurred for a patient at the Perry Point VA Medical Center. Identified only as Patient B, the report says the patient was seeking help at the mental health clinic before he killed himself.
