DOD Efforts to Ensure Quality of Care at Military Health Facilities

The Department of Defense (DOD) provides health care and
dental services to military servicemembers and their families at
hundreds of health facilities and clinics. Since 2014, Congress and the DOD have taken steps to strengthen patient safety at these facilities, including steps to ensure health care providers are qualified to deliver care. However, there have been incidents that resulted in serious safety issues for patients. We find out more from GAO's Sharon Silas.
