The care and treatment of our nation’s veterans during President Barack Obama’s two-terms hasn’t been bad — it’s been deadly.
For years, reports that the Veteran Affair’s hospitals have repeatedly lied and mistreated their patients (so badly, they’ve even desecrated veteran’s corpses and discarded them in piles) — all while Obama had whistle blowers hunted down and protected his cronies to blame for the disgusting system.
Now, the Obama administrations disgusting treatment of veterans has gotten so bad, a southeastern Oklahoma veterans facility reportedly let a grievously ill resident’s wounds become maggot infested, investigators concluded.
That veteran later died after he developed sepsis, which is an immune system response to the infection of a wound.
Four staff members have resigned their positions rather than face the possibility of getting fired Friday.
Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs executive director Myles Deering said the maggots were discovered while the patient was alive at the facility in Talihina, about 130 miles southeast of Tulsa. Deering said the maggots were not the cause of his death.
Deering said the veteran came to the center with an infection and died of sepsis, the Tulsa World reported.
The agency said a physician’s assistant and three nurses, including the director of nursing, resigned after an investigation was conducted. Spokesman Shane Faulkner said all four chose to resign before the termination process began.
The incident was reported to the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the district attorney for LeFlore and Latimer counties to determine if any charges should be filed.
Raymie Parker identified the late veteran as his father, Owen Reese Peterson. He died Oct. 3 at age 73.
“During the 21 days I was there … I pled with the medical staff, the senior medical staff, to increase his meds so his bandages could be changed,” Parker said. “I was met with a stonewall for much of that time.”
