VA bonuses went to officials at delay-prone hospitals

More than $380,000 in bonuses were awarded last year to directors and top executives at 38 VA hospitals where investigators are looking into claims of falsified appointment records or where there have been excessive delays in patient care, according to agency documents provided by an investigating House committee.

The bonuses were part of $2.7 million in extra pay given in 2013 to top ranking officials inside the troubled agency, a practice the Department of Veterans Affairs suspended earlier this year amid concerns that the money might have "incentivized inappropriate actions."
