Hospital Employee States Whistleblower Cause of Action

Galbraith v. Westchester Medical Center, ___A.D.3d___(2d Dep't. Jan. 15, 2014), is an interesting read. A hospital  perfusionist stated a cause of action under N.Y. Labor Law Section 741. He alleged that  alleging that he was demoted in retaliation for his objections to the rapid infuser policy, which he voiced because he was concerned that it threatened the quality of patient care. 

Note, that this is a public sector employment law case. The law is far my restrictive in the private sector in New York.
