A former registered nurse for the Oakland County jail has sued the county after she contracted a drug-resistant, flesh-eating staphylococcus bacterial infection while working at the jail.
She claims disability discrimination, failure to accommodate, interference with her workers’ compensation rights, retaliation, wrongful discharge, gross negligence and numerous violations of due process as well.
She claims Oakland County’s sheriff was covering up the poor conditions at the jail, and forced her to resign before she could file a workers’ compensation claim that would have exposed the county’s poor hygiene and maintenance policies.
