Here’s why no one was fired after VA mistakes cost a veteran his foot | Veterans Affairs and Veterans News from HadIt.com | Scoop.it

Officials at the Indianapolis Veterans Affairs hospital insist they wanted to fire the administrator whose mistakes led to the amputation of a veteran’s foot due to missed home care appointments, but couldn’t because the staffer retired before they could act.

“Had (the investigation) been completed before the employee retired, the Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center would have proposed the employee for termination,” Craig Larson, spokesman for the VA’s Chicago District, said in a statement. “The employee chose to retire while the investigation was ongoing, and there was nothing the center could do to stop that.”
