    VA Hospitals Out-Perform Non-VA Hospitals

    I thought that I would post an interesting study for folks to discuss.

    In this evaluation of the most recent, comprehensive public reporting of VA hospital quality that can be compared with non-VA hospitals, we found that VA hospitals performed better than non-VA hospitals for most outcome measures, but VA hospitals performed worse on certain patient experience measures and behavioral health measures. A recent systematic review was inconclusive about the quality of care provided at VA hospitals vs non-VA hospitals.3 In that analysis, VA hospitals generally performed better than non-VA hospitals with respect to safety and effectiveness of care; however, most of the studies in this review examined only a subset of patients, had a smaller sample size of non-VA Hospitals, used older data, and/or did not examine PSIs or the current patient experience metrics used by CMS.3

    It depends on the area. The VA here is excellent. My wife, who works in medical records for a large health care system, reccomends it to people who ask for advice.

    I do agree that the VA does have very good care at locations. The old saying that "if you have been to one VA, you have been to one VA" is certainly true.

    Depends on agenda of those doing the reporting. Last 8 years has seen VA in may places really go down hill. I do understand that any health care connected to service members is going to have it's own unique problems. A lot of if stems from those working with in the system just not caring one bit and they know knowing will be done to them.
    My last experience with them was a major improvement . I think they had a bit of a shake up.

    When I still lived in Northern Michigan, the VA Healthcare system for the U.P. and Wisconsin was excellant!!!! Moved to Texas in 2009, and ingested by the over whelmed West Texas VA Healthcare system. wow, it was 180 degree change in healthcare. Damn near killed me few yrs back, waiting on a Cardiologist consult for 3 weeks after dropping like a sack of crap on the treadmill during a stress test. Called VA about Cardiologist consult after 3 weeks, their answer was going to get to you next week on that, (also start to new fiscal quarter). I went to the ER 20 mins after phone conversation, was in ER 10 mins and admitted to the cardiac unit of local hospital, next morning got me 3 stents. So that old saying of once visiting one VA, is just like the other sure the hell don't apply in my book.

    Depends on who is making the report. Lot of vets have been left to die when they did not have to. Many still go without needed treatment. We have hope this new Man in charge will turn it around.
    Congress women Tammy knew VA was passing out drugs like candy kill vets did nothing. She was informed directly twice about it. Killing vets with drugs seemed fair to her.

    That was the plan, let you die no longer a burden. happens a lot. First thing they want you do is sign papers letting them pull the plug on you.

    I have gotten feedback from veterans from all over the country in my work. It is pretty clear that you have some very good VA's and some bad VA's. The VA realized this, hence their internal 5 start rating system.

    Tammy Suzanne Green Baldwin as she puts it is one of our gay congresspersons. About all she does is fly around with her girlfriend and ensure vets get no care. But she is a good liberal so she get reelected over and over.
