This is a true story. I learned about it from a person who was actually a medical diagnostic laboratory technician. She was in the industry for 30+ years, working in labs all over the country and in New York. To her, the work was done in a sterile room by a person who was in another lab setting, doing their own experiments, and not connected to the other lab’s labs. She was not allowed to interact with the scientists and technicians who worked there.
She did not have a bad experience working in the medical diagnostic lab. While her job might have been a little more intense and demanding, she was always the same person. She did not like it, but she still worked there and went to school for it. But for her, the workplace was not a pleasant place.
The lawsuit claims that she was subjected to a number of cruel and unusual punishment for her scientific research. She was kept in isolation, given no water for hours and was denied access to the restroom. She was locked in a room with no heat or light, and she was isolated from any kind of medical equipment. She says those conditions are so extreme that they are cruel and unusual punishment.
Not exactly a “new” story, but it’s interesting to see the kind of stuff that people think is cruel and unusual punishment in the medical field. We’re glad she’s suing, but we hope she doesn’t put herself in that situation again.
The lawsuit that has been filed in California is a good example of just how ridiculous things can get in the medical field.
In the case of the California lawsuit, a woman named Dr. Sarah Klinenberg filed a lawsuit against the hospital in the US. Dr. Klinenberg is the head of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at UC Davis Medical Center and she was a patient of one of the doctors. The lawsuit states that she was being punished because she was seen as being “unprofessional” by her nurses.
Well, that’s all very true. Unfortunately, it’s not really the first time a medical diagnostic laboratory has been sued for this kind of thing. The one that comes to mind is the one that was sued for the deaths of several children born while undergoing tests to determine their genetic predisposition for certain diseases. And for those who are not familiar with the case, the test involved using a blood sample and a sample of skin to analyze the genetic makeup of the person.
There are two major things that stand out in the lawsuit. First, the lab was found guilty of manslaughter when it failed to protect the babies after discovering that they did not have any known diseases, but the plaintiff argued that the lab was negligent for failing to take steps to protect the babies that were still alive at the time. Second, the lab was also found to have committed fraud when it failed to inform the parents of the risks to the babies.
I think the first claim is a bit much, but I don’t think the lab’s claim for fraud is all that far-fetched. The plaintiff doesn’t say that the lab failed to inform the parents of the risks to the babies. The problem is that the plaintiffs’ doctor who actually discovered that the babies were suffering from some sort of genetic disease, and then did the right thing and informed the parents, never told the parents of the risks to the babies.
