Created on Monday, 08 Aug 2016 16:07:36

Paralyzed Veterans of America is pleased with the results of The Joint Commission’s Special Focused Surveys on VA health care facilities, but is urging VA to continue to address longstanding problems such as understaffing and inconsistent practices across medical facilities. The survey results, released yesterday, show that VA has made significant progress since the surveys began two years ago.

“Paralyzed Veterans of America appreciates The Joint Commission’s work in assessing quality of care in the Veterans Health Administration. That, along with the annual site visits Paralyzed Veterans conducts at all 24 VA spinal cord injury and disease centers across the country, is the key to ensuring accountability and making improvements in the system,” said Sherman Gillums, Jr., executive director of Paralyzed Veterans of America.
