The Post-Standard By James T. Mulder

A recently released federal database shows, that in eight cases the Syracuse VA paid out more than $2 million in claims.

“The new database provides a glimpse at 12,000 claims, many of them medical malpractice complaints, filed against VA medical centers nationwide between 1989 and 2008. The information was recently released by The Project on Government Oversight, a nonprofit government watchdog group that obtained the database from the Department of Veterans Affairs through a Freedom of Information Act request.

A spreadsheet, available online (http://pogoarchives.org/m/ns/va-medmal-database.xls), gives a breakdown of claims information for each of the VA’s 153 medical centers.”
