"Audit: 1,000-plus NM vets await initial VA medical visits" – Las Cruces Sun News

More than 1,000 veterans have been waiting three months or more for initial medical appointments within the Veterans Affairs Department's health care system in New Mexico, according to the findings of an audit released Monday.  The wide-ranging audit covered hundreds of VA hospitals and clinics across the country, including the medical center in Albuquerque where officials previously said more than 3,000 patients were assigned to a doctor who didn't actually see them. – 5/10/2014
