A Government Accountability Office (GAO) report shows more doctors, nurses and other clinical specialists at the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) resigned or retired in fiscal 2015 than at any other time in the past five years. Of those who parted ways during that period, about 54 percent resigned, 36 percent retired and just under 5 percent were fired. The Government Accountability Office said VHA is struggling to keep doctors, nurses, physician's assistants, psychologists and physical therapists. The report is available on the GAO website.
