Three Veterans May Have Died Due to Misdiagnoses, VA Officials Say
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) - Officials say three veterans may have died due to the misdiagnoses at the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks.
This information comes after a public town hall meeting Monday morning.
The incorrect diagnoses are due to a pathologist who was found to be impaired on the job.
As a result, the VA had to review 33,806 cases and as of last Friday, 14,980 reviews have been made.
From that number, over 1,000 errors and misdiagnoses have been found.
Almost 70% of the misdiagnoses resulted in no or little error, which does not have any negative clinical impact on affected patients.
