Court Upholds Discharge of A Nurse For Snooping
Cassidy v. Pocono Med. Ctr., M.D. Pa., No. 12-cv-1191, 10/19/12, is an interesting decision.
Granting a motion to dismiss filed by a hospital that fired a nurse for allegedly snooping in a patient's chart, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania finds the nurse failed to state claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act or national origin discrimination violative of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
