VA settles complaints by 3 Phoenix whistleblowers

The Veterans Affairs Department said it has settled complaints filed by employees who faced retaliation after filing whistleblower complaints about the troubled Phoenix VA hospital. The employees were among the first to report widespread wrongdoing at the Phoenix hospital, including chronic delays for veterans seeking care and falsified waiting lists covering up those delays. Similar problems were soon identified at other VA medical facilities across the country.
