VAMC - Miami: Medical Mistakes at VA Hospital Slammed by Congress

Unhappy with the slow pace of improvements at a Veterans Administration (VA) hospital in Miami, where thousands of veterans were exposed to unsterilized colonoscopy equipment in 2009, lawmakers are calling for the ouster of the center’s director.

At a congressional hearing of the House Veterans’ Affairs committee last week, congressmen on both sides of the aisle said Mary Berrocal, the hospital’s director, has been too slow in making improvements at the facility. Some also suggested that Nevin Weaver, the regional VA director, should be replaced as well.
