Customer Question

I am a RN casemanager for a home hlth co.I hotlined the previos rn for neglect,fraud to div. of aging.Can I get fired for that since I am mandated as a nurse to hotline problems? The nurse was writing up visits she didn't do,decreased a pt to 1 x wk due to mileage and time,lied about her wound which was massive. I turned it in to my Sup. and she had to talk with her Sup and last wk her Sup was called to local office by me and she said she couldn't say if RN was turned in. So, to cover me, I hotlined her. Now what?

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
As you are probably aware, you can be terminated for any reason that is not based on discrimination. And so you could be fired, but if you can prove it was because you made a Hotline Report, then you would have legal recourse for a wrongful termination. You should not be fired for such a complaint.
