Brickbat: The Best of Care

An investigation by the
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review found that contractors or employees at
167 Veterans Affairs facilities committed 14,215 privacy violations
over a two-and-a-half year period. The violations
affected more
than 100,000 veterans and 551 VA employees
. Some of the
violations included posting photos of the “anatomy” of some of the
victims on social media. In other cases, the personal information
of some victims was used to obtain credit cards. The study found
that privacy violations at the VA very rarely result in the
offender being referred to the Office of Inspector General much
less punished.
