West Virginia Doctor: Veterans On VA Waiting List Are Committing Suicide

West Virginia Doctor: Veterans On VA Waiting List Are Committing Suicide

West Virginia’s Dr. Margaret Moxness claims that when she worked for the Huntington VA Medical Center she was told “to put patients seeking treatment off for months on end” and “at least two of those patients committed suicide.”

Moxness was employed at the VA medical center from 2008 to 2010.

According to Fox News, Moxness claims she was told “to delay treatment even after she told supervisors they needed immediate care.”

Moxness said: 

I was in a very tight-knit community. There was lots of extracurricular support: family, faith, vet centers. So we had help, but no thanks to the VA. …I mean, these men were eventually going to need more than a visit every 10 months.

Moxness is a psychiatrist. And she says her supervisors quit talking to her after she complained about the ill-treatment veterans were receiving.
