A federal audit shows that five Veterans Affairs medical facilities in Ohio scheduled most of their patients for appointments within 30 days, and two of those sites have been flagged for further review.

The VA says more than 57,000 patients nationwide have been waiting three months or more for initial medical appointments at VA hospitals and clinics.

The VA audit released Monday shows medical centers in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chillicothe and Dayton saw all but 2 percent of their patients within 30 days. The Cincinnati and Cleveland facilities are on the list for further review.

The Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Center in Columbus scheduled 94 percent of more than 36,700 appointments within a month. The Columbus center had more than 1,700 patients waiting between 31 and 60 days.
