‘Pig’ kept right on working; hospital going straight to court

A former critical care director at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Passavant has filed suit against the hospital claiming gender discrimination and retaliation. The woman claimed she was fired after complaining to her supervisors about a doctor who groped nurses several times in 2005 and 2006.

The lawsuit alleges that when she reported the incidents, her supervisors acknowledged problems with the doctor’s behavior, calling him a “pig.” But nothing came of her complaints. Instead, UPMC’s vice president of human resources allegedly told her not to make a “big deal” out of it and to ask one of the women the doctor had touched whether the conduct was “welcomed or not welcomed.”

Within a month, the director was fired. She is seeking lost wages plus compensatory and punitive damages.
