The Legion’s Health Policy Unit will be meeting with VA officials to discuss the credentialing & privileging process for medical personnel. VHA Handbooks and supporting documentation are being reviewed in order to identify policy gaps with the process, as well as the due process for physicians that are determined to be negligent in their practices. The issue resulted from an incidence where a veteran died years ago within the Department of Washington; the physician is still in practice today.
