Ensuring Quality Care for Our Veterans Act
This bill directs the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to contract with a nonfederal organization to conduct a quality management review of hospital care or medical services furnished by each Veterans Health Administration (VHA) provider whose license was terminated by a state licensing board based upon care or services provided in a non-VHA facility.
If a review determines that the standard of care was not met, the VA shall notify the individual who received such care or services.
