VA docs have to get blood from a vein to use a vein-based therapy, and they can only afford to buy the blood supply they need if they have a bank account.
One of the biggest problems veterans are having is not knowing what to get when they need it.
The Veterans Health Administration is struggling to make the most of a shortage of blood and other supplies that are at a premium in the market, the agency’s chief medical officer said this week.
Veterans who are not able to get their blood on their own have to rely on another source of blood, such as a bank or the hospital.
The VA says it is trying to fill the gap with a new vein-center network, but it has struggled to recruit enough doctors, nurses and technicians.
The agency has struggled even to recruit blood specialists, and many of the people who do fill out applications and fill out paperwork for blood work are new to the field, said the agency spokeswoman, Lisa J. Brown.
Brown said the VA has hired more than 5,000 new blood specialists in the past two years, but there has been a shortage, with a shortage in the supply of specialized blood for some blood types.
VA doctors are getting less training than they did 20 years ago, and some don’t have enough blood to do their job, Brown said.
The new vein centers are intended to give VA doctors more training, she said.
The VA has also been working to address other issues, including getting blood to those who need it more than the doctors, who need to have their blood tested regularly.
VA chief medical officers have been meeting with lawmakers in recent weeks to discuss ways to fix the shortage, and VA secretary David Shulkin has said he wants to bring more blood into the system, but he has yet to figure out how to do that.
The VA says that there is no shortage of money to cover the cost of a vein transplant, but some experts question that claim, because they say it’s hard to get a vein from a blood donor to a vein.
There are two types of veins: the standard vein and the special venous system, which is designed to supply blood from other sources.
The standard vein, which supplies the blood to most people, is a simple tube connected to a pump, called a vein pump, or a syringe.
Vegas can be found in the home, office or other places.
The standard vein has a tube that carries the blood from the patient’s chest to the vein.
The special venial system has a larger tube that is connected to the blood pump.
To have a vein, the patient must have a heart valve replaced, and the valve needs to be replaced, too.
If the valve is replaced, blood flows from the blood in the vein to the heart, which in turn flows to the rest of the body.
Once blood is drawn from a patient, the veins are sealed to prevent infection.
The process can take about three days.
But because the veins must be sealed, it can take longer to get an appointment for the patient to have blood transfusions and clot tests, which can take up to four weeks, according to the VA.
It can take more than a year for the blood needed for a vein transfusion to be available, according the VA’s website.
To make sure a vein can be used safely, doctors have to follow strict protocols and test for blood diseases and infections before giving the blood, said Robert W. Fenton, a professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina.
Doctors also have to monitor the blood coming out of the patient and make sure the vein is working properly.
