A report from the U-S Department of Veterans Affairs says doctors and nurses at the Tomah V-A mismanaged the care of a patient – leading to their death. The 30-year-old patient died two years ago. The name and gender of the victim haven’t been released. The report indicates the veteran walked into the Tomah V-A urgent care department and reported having a seizure. The patient was admitted, then transferred to two other facilities over the next month. They finally died in a V-A hospice unit. The Office of Inspector General found the V-A treatment decisions inadequate at several points during the treatment.
