According to federal records obtained by FOX25 Investigates, veterans' protected health information, lab results, doctors notes, and — in some cases, medicine — were mishandled 37 times by workers in the VA Boston Healthcare System in the last three years. The review comes after a disabled Navy veteran first told his story to FOX25 in March. Fox25 Investigates obtained records through the Freedom of Information Act that reveal at least 37 cases of mishandled sensitive material by the VA in Boston since 2013.
