DECATUR, Ga. (CBS46) -- Veterans Health administrator officials in Washington have placed its southeast regional director on immediate administrative leave.

The area's chief medical officer is also being reassigned pending a review of quality and safety issues in the Atlanta area. Seven other staffers are being moved out of patient care as well.

This shakeup follows a series of healthcare related issues involving VA patients in the Atlanta region. A number of those issues CBS46 has reported on in our Fighting For Our Vets segment.
