My son is a Veteran of the United States Army. He went to the #VA in Salt Lake City yesterday. This was the condition of the room he was seen in. Very unprofessional, unsanitary and disrespectful. Please retweet. Maybe @realDonaldTrump will see it.
.@OrrinHatch @SenMikeLee @RepJohnCurtis please look into this.
.update, the condition of the room was the way it was when he went in, no other room was offered and no attempt to clean it up was made for the duration of his appointment. No apologies offered. He received injections for a service injury during one of his tours in Iraq.
.update the local news is talking with my son and will give the #VA an opportunity to respond and explain why this was allowed.
.update Thank you all for the retweets. Several local news channels have contacted my son and will be interviewing him. The Chief of Staff from the #VA has left a voicemail for him. This has gotten much bigger than expected. I’m appreciative to all of you.
.update #VA is going to “review policies”. Says “sometimes medicine is messy.” Casts for diabetic vets done in this room. Not acceptable conditions for anyone. Just clean up between patients! Garbage on the counter, no place to wash hands, instruments not cleaned. #Yuck
.update At first I was saddened to see the room pics. Now I’m getting upset! Obviously “policies” aren’t practiced. Several patients must have been seen in here to get to this condition. Any gangrene? Who knows? Veterans need Choice! Where’s Congress?
.update My son Chris was interviewed by the local Salt Lake affiliates of FOX, ABC, CBS, and NBC. I think Fox will air at 9:00 pm tonight and the rest at 10:00 pm. My plan is to contact our lawmakers on Monday. Veterans need better care and choices. Thanks to all of you!!!
.update thanks to all! Including @fox13 that led tonight’s news at 9 with my son Chris, (@psycobing) his story and experience yesterday at the #VA.
Thank you, I think you all are doing a great job!
.thanks to all @abc4utah for doing a great job on Chris’ experience at the #VA(@psycobing)
