Whistleblowers! is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower Summit in Washington D.C.
Guest : Sean Higgins returns to update on his battle with the Memphis VA. Sean is an Air Force Veteran, and is employed by the Memphis VA. During his employment he has uncovered several instances of mismanagement, dangerous conditions for patients and horrendous in house practices that put veterans health in jeopardy. His exposure of these issues cost him his job. Sean has been reinstated and the management at the Memphis VA has made it their mission to make his time there as miserable as possible.
We will also be discussing the current presidential candidates and their responses to the known issues within the Veterans Administration. Like either one of them even has a clue.
Join us for what should be a eye opening show!
We will take calls the last half of the show.

Scandal at the Phoenix Veterans Administration lifted the curtain of secrecy on the VA’s secret waiting lists. The VA lies while patients die.
This is by no means a new phenomenon. The nation’s single-payer system for veterans has long been greatly overloaded. Congress tried to fix it in 1996 by passing a law requiring that any veteran needing care had to be seen within 30 days.
The VA is supposed to have a wonderful electronic medical records system, and the EMR is supposed to be the magic formula for efficiency and quality. The VA gamed the electronic system to hide the waiting lists.
Readers of the British press will be struck by the similarities between fudging waiting lists at VA hospitalsand stacking patients in ambulances outside UK hospitals. Finding it impossible to comply with a National Health Service mandate that all patients admitted to an emergency room be seen within four hours, hospitals kept patients waiting in ambulances outside the ER!
