Phoenix VA wait time whistle blower releases new book about scandal #Phoenix #wait #time #whistle #blower #releases #book #scandal Welcome to TmZ Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
“I knew there’d be some risk, I didn’t know how bad the risk would be, that was the scary part,” said Paula Pedene.
Just over eight years has passed since Pedene, a decorated Navy veteran, helped expose the cover up of wait times at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Hospital.
“I’m still fearful about some things, I still battle depression, but I think the book has done a wonderful job of giving me a chance to heal and move forward,” said Pedene.
In her new book “A Sacred Journey,” Pedene shares perspective on what it took to get the crucial details to the public. Recalling the ridicule and attacks to her reputation along the way. How those hiding from the truth were attempting anything they could to discredit she and her colleagues.
“For two years, it was a gut punch pretty much every day,” said Pedene.
She and others back in 2014 revealed VA officials were lying to the federal government about how long it was taking for vets to get an appointment. The reason, it meant losing out on pay bonuses the hospital received for keeping wait times short.
“They knew the data that they could report, that would make them look good, and hid the data that would make them look bad,” said Pedene who worked in public relations for the VA hospital at the time.
