VA's $900 Million Caregiver Program Bogged Down by Bad Data, IT Issues, GAO Finds

17 Sep 2019
Military.com | By Patricia Kime
Inaccurate data kept by the Department of Veterans Affairs on its staff for the Family Caregiver Program and delays in the technology infrastructure needed to expand the program are hampering an effort to include the caregivers of injured veterans from World War II through Vietnam, a government watchdog agency has found.
The Government Accountability Office released a report Monday noting that the number of staff supporting the Family Caregiver Program at VA medical centers does not match the data kept by the program office -- an inaccuracy that prevents the VA from fully understanding the number of personnel that will be needed as the program grows.

1. I can understand.

As a Veteran I want to go to the Veteran Medical Centers and clinics and nursing homes. Veterans need very special care not someone sitting next to them. I won't use it. It may be a good program but pukes are proud of not making government work and that includes Veterans Care. Sadly......
