Woman says hospital fired her for speaking up about safety issues

West Virginia Record, June 5, 2008
A Fayette County woman has filed a suit against Charleston Area Medical Center, claiming she was fired because she raised concerns over patient safety issues. Zeda Fox, who was employed by CAMC for about a year before being fired in February, claims she was fired because she had repeatedly raised patient safety concerns, particularly those related to understaffing of nurses. According to the lawsuit, the firing constitutes "unlawful retaliatory discharge."
