Two nurses who complained about Texas physician are indicted
Fort Worth Star-Telegram, July 20, 2009
Two nurses who lodged a complaint with the Texas Medical Board about a physician's standard of practice at a West Texas hospital face up to 10 years in prison after being indicted on charges of misuse of official information. Clair Jordan, executive director of the Texas Nurses Association, called the case bizarre and said it would discourage other whistle-blowers from coming forward "especially if they lose their jobs," as the two nurses have.
