Regulators are currently investigating a retaliation case after a Dallas hospital allegedly fired a social worker when she filed a complaint against her supervisors when they asked her to violate regulations.
According to the Department of State Health Services, a lawsuit has now been filed against the Parkland Memorial Hospital after a former social worker was fired for stating that her supervisors asked her to transcribe the vouchers for medication, talk about medications with patients and also discuss different “medication options with doctors.”
Social workers should make recommendation for medication prescriptions or transcribe vouchers. The lawsuit claims that the woman was fired shortly after reporting this issue. This is not the first incident that has come about at the hospital and regulators are now stating the the hospital needs a complete overhaul.
