Chicago Illinois V.A. Hospital serving roaches in meals
I was going to write about our Veterans Hospitals today after returning from shopping. However, while looking for the story to write about, I found this!
Cockroaches served in food at Chicago-area VA hospital
Thursday, Apr 28, 2016
What I was going to write about,
is what I have seen at every visit to every
V.A. Hospital since going to them for help.
Parking for the disabled Veteran
“REEKs from GREED!”
In every one of those hospitals,
the young healthy employees
take the best spots closest to doors
we the Veterans must fight for what is left.
Many veterans and I
complain to anyone inside with an ear,
and that ear suddenly goes deaf!
Because that ear is on an employee
if that person becomes a Whistle blower,
life becomes a horror.
That person might also be parking in our spots.
We have watched Employees
Park in handicapped spots while carrying their uniforms
place the sign on the mirror
change while heading to work!
U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.)
Today released the following statement after sending a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) last week
To demand answers about allegations that food service operations at the Edward Hines, Jr., VA Hospital in Illinois
are plagued by cockroaches and other unsanitary conditions:
“A veteran should NEVER be served food with a roach on their tray.
It’s not only deplorable to find out that a roach infestation in the veteran’s kitchen has been allowed to knowingly exist for years without remedy,
but once again we learn that the merry-go-round of bullied silence and cover-up continues at Hines VA with impunity.”
