Jury Finds that Nursing Home Wrongfully Terminated Employee Who Reported Falsified Records

A jury has sided with a former employee of an assisted living facility who claimed she was wrongly fired after she reported that the facility had falsified documents. The employee was fired in 2008 from her position as marketing director at the assisted living facility.

According to court records, she saw two officials falsify documents related to the training of employees who work with dementia and Alzheimer's patients that were to be inspected by state regulators. She reported the falsified documents when the facility''s certification was being questioned and the company was trying to clear itself of any regulatory concerns. The jury awarded her damages for the wrongful termination. For more, read the story.
