A Portland, Ore., jury has awarded more than $3 million to a nurse, finding that she was wrongfully terminated by Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center for complaining about cost-cutting measures. Linda Boly, a registered nurse, told management that rushing through patients was jeopardizing their care. The hospital dictated the amount of time nurses had to complete tasks and Ms. Boly was written up three times for failing to meet productivity quotas. The nurse said she spent more time with a patient than the quota allowed if the patient’s needs required it. During the trial in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Legacy argued Boly was fired in June 2013 for poor job performance. The jury obviously disagreed.

Lawyers and staff continue to help me

I suffered from an allergic reaction to a common medication causing permanent injury when I was 15 years old. My settlement allows me to take care of myself instead of being on disability. Even after my case was over, the lawyers and staff continue to help me.
