OIG Outlines Issues at Kansas VA Outreach Clinics

KSAL StaffJuly 9, 2014

The Office of Inspector General for the Veterans Affairs Department has released its recommendations for improvements at the six community-based outpatient clinics across Kansas overseen by the Dole VA Medical Center in Wichita.

The recommendations are based in part on a site visit to the Parsons clinic in May along with other data gathered for VA outpatient facilities in Hays, Salina, Hutchinson, Parsons, Dodge City and Liberal.

Issues cited in the report include no panic alarm system, incomplete diagnostics, inadequate staff training and poor medication management.

The report also compares how well the different clinics are able to meet wait-times of under seven days.

U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran has long criticized the VA for not having a primary care provider at its Liberal clinic for the past three years.
