Florida sues VA for permission to inspect VA Hospital and Facilities

Updated: Monday, June 23 2014, 09:19 AM CDT
The state agency for Health Care Administration is going to court for permission to inspect the Veterans Affairs hospitals in Florida.
   
The lawsuit comes after state agents paid unannounced visits to six VA hospitals and other VA facilities.
   
Those agents were blocked from entering the facilities.
The VA sent letters to Governor Rick Scott and an AHCA official saying federal buildings are not subject to state law, or inspection.
     
The lawsuit claims the VA has repeatedly failed to comply with minimum standards of patient safety in VA hospitals in Florida.
