Missing medications, improperly cleaned medical equipment and a doctor performing a procedure he didn’t have permission to do are among numerous problems recently discovered at the Atlanta VA Medical Center in Decatur.

Inspectors from a national group that accredits health care facilities noted dozens of instances of nurses, doctors and other hospital staff failing to follow proper procedure during a four-day visit to the veterans hospital in March. The problems are detailed in a confidential report obtained by Channel 2 Action News.
