VA providing care to Veteran flooding victims

A note from our Medical Center Director Fernando O. Rivera: Due to the team’s dedication, the Hammond and Baton Rouge CBOCs are open and seeing patients. Patient and employee safety is our highest priority and with continued road and school closures, some patients are understandably canceling appointments. Staff are rescheduling them as needed and because some employees have been impacted as well, Nursing, Pharmacy and Police staff have deployed to Baton Rouge to meet our Veterans needs. Our HAS team is working closely with Tri-West, who is assessing the status of all Veterans Choice appointments in the impacted areas and rescheduling as necessary to ensure our Veterans are cared for.

Mental Health providers and social workers are out in shelters working with Veterans and we’ve reached out to our extended care patients, such as HBPC and Hospital at Home, to assess their situations and ensure their health care needs are being met. We’ve checked in with nursing homes that house Veterans in the impacted areas and found that they are fully operational with no flooding.

I’m proud to say that, with few exceptions, all of our patients have been contacted. With such conditions as widespread flooding, street and school closures, and intermittent cellular availability, this is no small feat. We have a strong and resilient team who is supportive of each other and committed to our mission of serving Veterans.
