Honor Veterans' Right to Heal this Veterans Day
Add your voice: Tell the Chicago VA to make good on promised improvements
At a meeting last spring with IVAW and National Nurses United, Chicago's Jesse Brown VA Medical Center Director, Michael Anaya, promised immediate action on a number of changes that will greatly improve the health care for veterans and working conditions for the nurses who serve them with such dedication. But after six months, we are still waiting.
Remind him that veterans should be getting the highest quality of care with dignity and respect. These are the issues:
1) Better staff to patient ratios in the mental health ward
2) Staff training in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Military Sexual Trauma, and Traumatic Brain Injury
3) Better patient garments that ensure dignity and privacy
