VA doctor has suicidal vet removed from DC hospital, vet kills themself days later


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — A veteran battling opioid withdrawal and suicidal thoughts begged to stay at the Washington veterans hospital one night in early 2019. Instead, a doctor had the veteran escorted out by police and said the patient could “go shoot [themself]. I do not care.”

Six days later, the veteran died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/va-doctor-has-suicidal-vet-removed-from-dc-hospital-vet-kills-themself-days-later-1.639186
