Indian Health Service: Poor Conditions and Medical Equipment Challenges

Video URL



Indian and Alaska Native populations at federally operated medical facilities. Of the 212 buildings that IHS has rated, about 61 percent are in fair or poor condition, compared to the goal of having 90 percent in good or excellent condition. The state of medical equipment at IHS federally operated facilities cannot be determined because IHS does not have complete or reliable data. Our recommendations include that IHS implement a plan to address problems with its medical equipment inventory and provide greater oversight moving forward.
