VA doctors' accoutability
By Berton Galloway

Wow wouldn't that be great if Ketchikan General Hospital would do that! I was a long time employee for the hospital. I went in for a minor surgery and 5 surgeries later my life is ruined.

I'm in tax trouble, home is ready for foreclosure and life is a living hell. I have their insurance company stomping me into the ground. No one once from the hospital has ever looked at this -- and I was a valued employee. So what happens to the paying customers?

Signed, close to the end.
