More Leadership failures at a Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital
Leadership failures at a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Arkansas allowed a pathologist to work with little challenge to his competence and authority, resulting in more than 3,000 diagnostic errors and at least two deaths, the VA’s top health watchdog reported Wednesday.
A VA Office of Inspector General dive into the case of Robert Morris Levy, a former VA pathologist who was sentenced in January to 20 years for involuntary manslaughter and mail fraud, has shown that “deficiencies in the quality management processes” and “concerns about reprisal” at the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks allowed the doctor’s misconduct to go unchallenged.
