FL Amends VA Lawsuit

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration has amended its lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The state was using the case of veteran Roland "Dale" Dickerson as an example of  a patient who received subpar medical care at the VA, but a Times review of his medical records revealed the state had its facts wrong in the lawsuit. 
 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
