Chemical Restraints and Retaliation

Published on January 4th, 2018

25 News-Week reported that Katrina Wesemann won a $5.2 million settlement against Bloomington-based Heritage Enterprises and its Dwight-based facility, Heritage Manor – Dwight. The jury awarded the sum to a local nurse who says she was fired after refusing to chemically restrain residents and reporting that her nursing home employer was ordering her to “double-dose” patients and cover up injuries.

Wesemann said she refused to follow the director of nursing’s orders to “drop a pill,” or double dose agitated residents with anti-anxiety medications. She also said she refused to delete or omit records of suspicious injuries, her attorney Timothy Coffey said in a press release.

She made a call to her corporate hotline to report her supervisor’s activities, and was fired in retaliation in 2012, Coffey said.
