A major electrical power outage occured on Monday June 24, 2013 at the Department of Veteran Affairs, which has left the IT, Electronic Medical records and Computer Data Base systems of the VA unavailable and unsecured, here in Honolulu Hawaii, the main electrical power outage was located at the Spark M. Matsunaga Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Reports by the VA workers stated that the electricity went down yesterday and finaly back up before noon today Tuesday, June 25, 2013 and was only a minor relief, since the IT, Electronic Medical records and Computer Data Base systems would not be up and running until tomorrow, Wednesday. Many Veterans needing medical information and assistance as well as workers , commented that they find it unsatifactory for a major government system to become so crippled and unaccessable.

And many veterans feel it is a prime example of the dysfunction of the Department of Veteran Affairs and Retired Genral Shinseki to be able to manage it’s IT & Health Care systems. The new reports of the Veterans Administration backlog of Veteran cases show that more than 900,000 veterans are without the full and proper assesment that would allow for the necessary medical access, health care and benefits needed, that so many veterans have been denied. Its seems like with this most recent report of the latest elecrical power outaqge only reconfirms that the lights have been off at the VA for decades, but whether anyone is going to finally take action and fix the dysfunctional system is yet to be seen, since congress and community leaders turn a blind eye and Retired General Shinseki forgets how not to be retired and to take action to correct the systemic problems we and others continue to report.
