NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A new report is criticizing two middle Tennessee veterans' hospitals for not doing enough to prevent harm to patients. The Tennessean reports that the Office of the Inspector General survey comes two years after the Veterans Affairs hospital in Murfreesboro was cited for potentially exposing thousands of vets to infection from unclean colonoscopy equipment. The report says the Tennessee Valley Health Care System, which runs the VA hospitals in Nashville and Murfreesboro, needs to improve its quality management.
