A federal judge is allowing a woman to proceed with a lawsuit that claims the Crow tribe’s nursing home leaders in Montana conspired to fire her for reporting that a patient had been molested.
Tammy Wilhite is a former nurse at Awe Kualawaache Care Center, a tribe-owned nursing home in Crow Agency. She says the nursing home’s administrator and board of directors fired her March 29 on the pretext that she had a gun in her car.
Wilhite claims that the real reason she was fired was because she told state health officials that a patient had been molested by a nursing home worker who was transporting him.
