Connecticut state auditors have found issues with the way the Department of Veterans Affairs operates.
A report on VA operations from 2016-2017 was released last week. It shows the VA does not have an inventory system for all medications. The state agency only started tracking prescriptions in an electronic database in 2017.
Auditors recommend the VA adopt a medication inventory system to prevent potential losses.
The VA responded in the report by saying staffing limitations at its pharmacy prevent them from tracking over-the-counter drugs.
Auditors also found the VA does not define where donations are spent unless a donor designated that, specifically. They suggest more internal audits.
