Guilty: VA Clinician Sodomized, Molested Veteran Patients

74

VA Clinician

A Kansas jury convicted sex abuser Mark Wisner of five sex-related charges committed while he worked as a physician assistant at Eisenhower VA Medical Center.

Wisner was convicted based on testimony from four veterans and a recorded admission of guilt during an IG investigation. The veterans testified Wisner conducted improper testicular, penis and anal examinations at the VA medical center.

According to CJ Online:

Wisner, an elderly Horton resident and U.S. veteran, stood as District Court Judge Gunnar Sundby separately read “guilty” to one felony count of aggravated criminal sodomy, one felony count of aggravated sexual battery and the three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery. Wisner remained jailed in Leavenworth County and the judge scheduled sentencing for Sept. 29. He could receive more than a decade in prison.

Allegations also included sexual assault, battery, unnecessary examinations of patients and excessive prescription of pain medicine.

Wisner surrendered his license after providing oral testimony to IG officers that he lacked self-control and confessed, “I don’t have any business in medicine.”

His sentencing is next month, and Wisner may be sentenced to a decade in prison.

Dozens of lawsuits are reportedly pending in US District Court against Wisner.

VA will likely attempt to exculpate its liability by arguing Wisner was operating outside the scope of his employment.

The VA North Texas Health Care System in Dallas says 20 of its nurses have headed to Houston to relieve the staff at Houston’s beleaguered Veterans Affairs hospital. The team will join a 25-member team from the Austin-based Central Texas Veterans Health Care System, and 15 professionals from San Antonio-based South Texas Veterans Health Care System. According to a statement Wednesday, Houston’s VA hospital has had about 700 staffers staying onsite, sleeping on floors, in the auditorium and in offices to keep the facility open throughout the disaster. A former U.S. Army ranger swam through flood waters to the hospital… Read more »

Having spent a couple weeks in the Houston VA some time ago, I can say that Ranger may have been netter off swimming to another hospital. But then, with staff locked in there, perhaps he might be seen in a timely manner. When I was there, the VA police seemed more intent on searching any veteran coming into the hospital through the main doors than they did of any punk or thug entering the hospital through side doors. Vets who hang around outside in a little park smoking, and that side door was wide open. Any thug would come up,… Read more »

Seymore,
This morning on WDBO, 96.5 fm, news, “…Secretary of VA Shulkin is headed to Texas!”
Hopefully he’ll insure vets in Texas AND Louisiana are taken care of! South Western Louisiana was also hit hard by torrential rainfall! Hundreds of people had to be evacuated there as well!

Seymore,
That $2+ billion VA just received for the choice program, can you see where VA will be going back to Congress (soon) because a majority of it will be used to pay for veterans affected by Hurricane Harvey?!

I’m not bitching about veterans receiving outside healthcare due to Harvey, mind you. It’s just that because this natural disaster came along right after the money was allocated, there could be temptation on some of the VA AND private healthcare providers to scam the system!

I hope I’ve explained it correctly!

James Gallegos

Why are 700 VA employees sleeping. ! I’ll bet they were stuck there and all of them will get over time or triple time since it’s a natural disaster.

If the storm does not kill them, the VA will or tell them to come back at a later date. !

If they are caring for the public and treat them the way veterans are treated and complain about their care. !
The disruptive committee is going to be very busy !

This phony Va argument means that the VA was grossly negligent or recklessly indifferent to supervision of these creeps and incompetents OR the did not give a rat’s ass. Argument does not hold water in a Real Courtroom; Sounds like the old excuse: “Yer Honor, I didn’t do it but so did he!” Piled higher and higher. The VA’s not accepting financial responsibility for this creep’s conduct is disgusting in and of itself, but typical of such lowlife persons who go to work for the VA.

I’m curious, what did the VA say when these veterans told them about the abuse. ! Why did it take veterans to bring this person down. ! The OIG, had no choice, since he admitted it. ! If this employee would have pled the 5th, he would be chief of the service by now. Why did they not fire the chief of staff and the director. ! Was the patient representative involved.

I’m quite sure wherever Wisner goes, he’s soon to have friends up the ass. Outside of his scope of duties? I sure hope so. VA is responsible.

“I don’t have any business in medicine.” Yeah, but the VA looked the other way and gave you an ability to abuse veterans, just like they do with many other quack employees. Wisner seriously was operating outside the scope of his employment, but the VA, as his employer, had a duty to supervise him, and like they do often, the VA failed miserably. I seriously believe the only reason why this guy was caught, the IG investigated and he was convicted was because the veterans who came forward were able to prove what happened. That, and the presence of a… Read more »

When the Kansas Medical Licensure board investigated, they spell out 7 patients being assaulted in the Consent to Surrender his license.

Yet he was only convicted of a few charges, and the VA wants to absolve their own responsibility for him working for the VA.

If the VA was considered an individual who acted the way they collectively act, it would be said that the individual behaves in a passive agressive manner, is abusive to those in his charge, and displays a pathology of deception. This individual long ago from documented actions would be required to register as a sex offender. This indivdual would be deemed by the court to be a hostile witness in proceedings with a history of perjury under oath. This individuals criminal record would cover a wide gamut of criminal activities and would include personal, property, and civil rights violations. This… Read more »

John, I can only suggest posting the perps name here so we can research them.

What can you do? I can only suggest documenting it in writing as detailed as you can, and then asking for a meeting with the Chief of Staff and director.

Or, after you have it documented in writing, you could call Trumps hotline. That seems to get some attention in the VA.

In my opinion, the key is to document it as detailed as you can so the VA cannot claim they did not know.
