I enjoy reading these VA reports. It beats the pants off the VAOIG VAMC hospital inspections. Since they could never pass the high bar for emergency rooms, VA simply declared the ERs persona non grata. Now, if you show up with your guts hanging out from a rude encounter with a knife, they call an ambulance for you. How Veterancentric. 

Anyway, it’s nice to see the statistics on how many appeals were remanded to death or got the rocket docket treatment. Most of the ones I’ve asked for advancement on recently still took a year unless the Vets were terminal with metastatic cancer. Fastest was 8 days.
