Allegations of Secret Waiting Lists at VA Hospitals Spreading

Allegations of secret waiting lists a veterans hospital in Phoenix are now spreading to other VA hospitals, including the Edward Hines Veterans Hospital in Maywood, Illinois. A union president at the hospital says employees have told her there is a similar waiting list for patients there. Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL), a veteran himself, says, "I would like a full and fair investigation by the Inspector General of the V.A. to be completed going through the waiting of all Illinois veterans at Illinois facilities."

The department's inspector general is investigating and another review will be overseen by the White House Deputy Chief of Staff.
