Why is the hospital killing veterans?

I was looking at the CNN website and I came across this item.  It says "Hospital delays killing veterans".  The first thought was, why are hospitals killing veterans?  How many were they planning to kill?  Why were they delaying in killing them?  Then it struck me, it is the delays in treatment that is killing veterans, and not the hospital itself in an active way.

This was another example of weird headlines that you used to see on the Tonight Show.  The headline is so ambiguous, that I thought that the hospitals were planning on dispatching a pile of veterans and they were delayed in the act.
