VA HOSPITAL VIRGINIA / PATIENT ABUSE/REPRISAL
The Patient Advocates are worthless. Not only did they not even attempt to process my complaint, they went back and told the doctor's everything I said and now I am being punished for reporting patient abuse. It makes no sense to me that they even have Patient Advocates if they are not advocating for the Veterans but for the wrongdoers and the ones being reported. Someone needs to seriously look into retaliation here and I know several other Veterans that have the same issue with the doctor's and medical staff retaliating against them for going to an Advocate. Personally - I think it just a quick way for them to "weed out" anyone that holds them to their mission. This hospital does not care for the Vet and treats us like we are a waste of their time.
