$1 million worth of medical equipment missing from Indiana VA

May 12, 2017

More than $1 million worth of medical equipment has disappeared from the Indianapolis VA Roudebush Medical Center in recent years, according to an article on the WISHTV website.
 
VA officials say losses are small compared to the inventory’s size, but may indicate poor record-keeping.
 
The records show a systemic pattern of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of items that go missing each year at the Indianapolis VA.
 
Four years after the VA signed a contract to install tracking devices on equipment, the technology has been implemented in only about a third of 152 VA medical centers nationwide.
