The Marion Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) is defending the credentialing process it used to hire Dr. Jose Veizaga-Mendez, who resigned after allegedly being implicated in 10 patient deaths.
A check into Veizaga-Mendez’s records revealed that he lost his license in Massachusetts in 2006 over accusations of “grossly” substandard care.
Allegations of document shredding, shoddy oversight and substandard care in the wake of the scandal led U.S. Sen. Richard J. Durbin to remind VA employees of their rights under the federal Whistleblower Protection Act.
