Hospital employee alleges ongoing cover-up at Phoenix VA hospital

Star Tribune / Associated Press, June 25, 2014

An employee of the Veterans Affairs hospital in Phoenix that is at the center of a nationwide scandal over delays in care is alleging there is an ongoing cover-up of patient deaths at the facility. Scheduling clerk Pauline DeWenter also acknowledged that she was the person who maintained a "secret list" of veterans who waited months for appointments. DeWenter spoke with the Arizona Republic Monday and also did interviews with CNN. She told the Republic she has spoken to VA Office of Inspector General investigators about the list, turned over evidence and reported her suspicions of a cover-up.
