    i was one of the veterans and employees at the combus va that cared and actually gave a (expletive deleted) and complained when the lazy incompetent corrupt employees failed to do their jobs. I have a masters in organizational communication and like I said prior service. The Columbus va seemed to think that I was not an appropriate fit for the current climate at the va. I had documentation of employees leaving patient data in bathrooms. Employees stealing other employees access cards. Employees taking extended breaks and lunches. Rns and lpns that waited an excessive amount of time before responding to a veteran and their needs. In addition. I had filed anEEO complaint for sexual misconduct against an MSAand another RN in February of this year and was terminated in May. For the record. I have documented PTSD due to MST that is in my military service record. In addition. The va has repeatedly denied my request for military care at the military treatment facility.

      Michelle, I am nobody; just another disabled vet, determined to help my brothers and sisters. I would like to suggest that you contact one of your elected “representatives”. My experience has shown that contacting a senator or congressperson gets results. While I believe in Secretary McDonald, it is a fact that he cannot effectively handle every individual case; he is, afterall, only a man. Thank you for trying to help us! Please don’t give up on Secretary McDonald; I have exchanged a couple of emails with him, & he has admitted his mistakes, & expressed to me, what I feel in my skeptical heart, is a determination to improve the lives of America’s veterans. His service to this great country has left him with medical problems, & sleepless nights too, yet all one has to do is watch the news to see how hard he is working for us. Again, my sister, THANK YOU for trying!

    I am curious; what has happened to the idea of hiring more “front-line” employees – those that actually take care of us? Many veterans & VETERANS Administration employees also have opined on the need for more (humane) personal relations training for new and existing employees. Having worked at the VAMC in Minneapolis, I know, personally, that the training did not entail one iota of “customer” service. I don’t like that word – I’m a VETERAN, NOT A “CUSTOMER”. Perhaps if the disgruntled, lackadaisical, & rude employees were better trained, or knew that if they don’t straighten up, they WILL lose their jobs, things might begin to improve. I don’t mean to be cynical, but will say whatever I feel I must to help my brothers & sisters, which will residually help the VETERANS Administration.
    I still support Secretary McDonald in his efforts, & believe whole-heartedly that he is determined to make things right for ALL veterans! I even have faith that when he is done with “it”, every vet will be proud to say…..THIS IS MY VA! May God bless him as he works so hard for us. God bless our troops, our veterans, & may GOD BLESS AMERICA!
