Southern California Public Radio

Officials with the Veterans Administration’s West Los Angeles Medical Center say they have not yet been contacted by the federal VA about conducting an audit on wait times and record keeping. The VA said it will audit all of its medical facilities around the country over the next several weeks, following allegations that 40 veterans died at its hospital in Phoenix while waiting to get appointments for health care, and that officials there destroyed records.
