Close to $1M in missing
items at VA


NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) - We paid for it and they lost it.  The 22News I-Team uncovered nearly $1 million worth of items missing from the Veterans Affairs healthcare system.
The I-Team went through hundreds of pages of the central-western Massachusetts V.A.'s personal lost and found.  Is it poor record keeping or government waste?
From a $10 calculator to a $12,000 bed.  Dozens of cell phones, pagers and printers unaccounted for.  Careless employees or bad inventory?

The 22News I-Team reviewed hundreds of pages of reported missing items from the Veterans Affairs Central-Western Massachusetts Healthcare system from 2010-2016.  We found missing window air conditioning units ($571), fax machines ($960), even televisions, washing machines, dishwashers and ovens.  Plus prescription drugs like oxycodone
