I spent 3 months at the VA Domiciliary, White City, OR from July through October 1994. The services I received were generally good. The facility was a filthy mess. But I didn't observe any bats- or if I did, I was too stunned for the sight to register in my consciousness.
Shame on the VA Dom in White City. Shame on Ms. Diehl with her pathetic attempt to "turn lemons into lemonade" by stating the presence of bats in a VETERANS' MEDICAL FACILITY is "actually beneficial" in keeping the insect population down, thus saving all the patients from West Nile Virus.
A lot of people in the VA "medical care" system need to be fired, if not brought up on criminal charges.
