A pharmacist at Humble Surgical Hospital has now filed a wrongful termination and retaliation lawsuit against her former employer after she was allegedly fired when she reported multiple errors to her superiors.
Officials with the hospital have denied the allegations at this time. The woman was hired as the director of pharmacy at the hospital in October 2011, where she was in charge of running the pharmacy as well as looking over the patient’s charts.
It was also in her job description to report any medication errors that were found. She documented all errors that were made, but on Jan. 23, the nursing officer allegedly counseled her to stop doing so and to stop informing the nurses of these errors. She fired just a few days later.
