WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Employment Law Group® partner David Scher's advocacy for whistleblowers' rights was featured in a story by Military Times and other Gannett Government Media outlets this week. The report highlighted current court cases addressing abuses which allegedly occurred at VA Medical Centers around the U.S. 


Scher represents the whistleblowers which include former physicians and other medical staffers who witnessed improper practices conducted at the VA medical facilities. The whistleblowers allege patients underwent unnecessary medical treatments - some by unlicensed physicians - and witnessed patients being held for unnecessarily long periods of time by VA employees.

"These former healthcare professionals attempted to point out the dangers patients were facing at these VA Medical facilities," stated Scher. "How such rampant disregard for regulations and respect for patients took place is a travesty. The whistleblowers are stepping  forward to protect these patients' rights as well as their own."

The Employment Law Group® continues to pursue justice for the whistleblowers involved in the VA Medical Centers scandal.
