Viral photos of a filthy VA hospital room has prompted an apology from the facility and a review of the infirmary's policies and procedures.

KUTV reported that Army veteran Christopher Wilson arrived for a podiatry appointment at the VA clinic on April 5 and, after waiting 45 minutes, was placed in an exam room with debris on floor.

"I figured that they would say, "Oh, this room is not clean" and take me somewhere else, but they just kind of blew past it, didn't acknowledge it", he said.

Wilson expected better treatment.

"It's kind of weird that the people who are there to serve us kind of see us as a hindrance more than anything", he said. "It's frustrating", Wilson told Fox 13 in Salt Lake City.

"I and the entire facility apologize to him for that experience", she said.

Mr Wilson's father Stephen Wilson took to Twitter asking President Donald Trump to intervene.

In another incident from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, the parents of a military veteran resolved a lawsuit against the federal government that alleged that their son died due to poor medical care provided by the hospital.

Gribbin insisted that the Wilsons' experience was well out of the ordinary in Salt Lake.

"The condition of the room was the way it was when he went in, no other room was offered and no attempt to clean it up was made for the duration of his appointment". Very unprofessional, unsanitary and disrespectful.

'Maybe @realDonaldTrump will see it'.

He also said he had been told by the VA that "sometimes medicine is messy". Not acceptable conditions for anyone. Garbage on the counter, no place to wash hands, instruments not cleaned. She said there will be an investigation.

"Staff are really quite upset that this has happened", said Dr. Karen Gribbin MD, SLC VA Hospital Chief of Staff.

'Mr Wilson should not have been placed in that room in that condition, ' she admitted.

"My understanding was that strictly these casts are applied in this room but there (are) not other types of debridement or surgical removal of tissue or anything like that that occurs (in the room), so I do not believe Mr. Wilson was exposed to any risky body fluids or blood", Gribbin told the station.

Stephen Wilson said he worries his son could have been subjected to the risk of infection by virtue of the room was placed in, adding "diabetic ulcers are by nature open wounds". Asked whether the new inquiry would actively look for patterns of additional rooms having been left unclean for patients, Gribbin said, "We are talking with staff across the board and making sure we are all on the same page". "Our vets have been abandoned", he said in a 2015 speech.
