VA Secretary Eric Shinseki on Friday placed on administrative leave a nurse in a Wyoming medical center after seeing an e-mail containing explicit directions on how to “game” the system and hide long delays in treating veterans for medical and mental health issues.

The nurse, David Newman, works at the Cheyenne VA Medical Center, which was investigated late last year by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Medical Inspector in connection with allegedly falsified wait-time records at a VA clinic in Fort Collins, Colo.
