(KMOV) – Missouri Congressman Russ Carnahan is anticipating the deadline for the veterans-patient satisfactory survey after touring the St. Louis Cochran VA Medical Center Tuesday.

Last year, it was discovered the medical center had been using unsterilized medical equipment.
Congressman Carnahan said that he believes the medical center has made a serious attempt to settle the issues that plagued the center for over the past year.
“It is important to note the work is underway to do the state of the art sterilization facility,” Carnahan said.
The new sterilization center is expected to open next year.
Carnahan also says he is pleased with the Cochran VA Medical Center's future plans based on input from agencies that have conducted reviews of the center.
