VA Medical Care Quality Review

Our teams of architects, advocates, and licensed medical professionals conduct routine site visits to 31 VA Spinal Cord Injury units and Long-term Care Centers to ensure quality care standards are met. Medical Services also operates a SCI/D hotline and develops consumer and clinical practice guidelines widely considered to set the standard of care.

Paralyzed Veterans is the only veterans service organization that routinely audits VA hospitals to ensure quality healthcare and best practices.

The VA has a new access and quality healthcare tool for veterans. Learn more here: Access to Quality Care.

 Veterans Spinal Cord Injury/Disease Program

Ongoing, we assist in the development, design, and organization structure for the Veterans Spinal Cord Injury/Disease (SCI/D) Program. The team provides education with support on various committees. We also provide guidance to the general public on the care of the SCI/D individual and fund Patient and Caregiver Guides and other publications.
