Scandal: VA Employee Describes Patients Lying in Feces for Hours (Video)

Thursday, June 5th, 2014 by Jim Hoft



On Tuesday Progressives Today posted a firsthand account of the lax care at the St. Louis VA at Jefferson Barracks. Evita Simone Allen visited the St. Louis VA medical center at Jefferson Barracks to tend to an ailing uncle. “Vita” spoke exclusively to Progressives Today about the filth, feces, urine and trash she saw piled up in her uncle’s room at the VA.

The St. Louis VA apologized to Evita Allen on Wednesday.

This week another concerned family member and VA employee spoke with Progressives Today about their experience with the St. Louis VA at Jefferson Barracks and other facilities. The employee described alleged mistreatment of veterans in St. Louis.

The employee watched as patients were left in feces for hours and vomit sat on the floor in the waiting area.

At one point the employee broke down describing the treatment of her veteran father.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
