Memphis VA Launching Investigation into ‘Serious Allegations’ Against Official

The Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s director said yesterday he would immediately launch an investigation into “serious allegations” that a recently promoted official falsified time cards of hospital employees, The Commercial Appeal reports. The claim is that Cheryl Brewer, assistant chief of the human resources office, approved paid time off for employees who had already used their annual leave. This newest incident joins a list of troubles that have plagued the facility in recent months, including the firing of two top officials and increased scrutiny from Tennessee’s Congressional delegation.
