Whistleblower given compensation

Published on January 17th, 2008

Indiana Court awarded damages to nursing home whistleblower.  A whistleblower who claimed she was fired in retaliation for reporting an employee who was sexually abusing a patient at Heritage Manor Nursing Home in Colfax recieved $17,000.

Earlier the state fined Heritage for failing to report the suspected abuse to the state public health department.  Judge Charles Reynard awarded $10,0000 in pain and suffering to whistleblower Michele Bolster. He pointed out the widow had nine children, including six adopted with special needs, and that Bolster’s firing left her with the uncertainty of having medical insurance. Judge Reynard called it, "particularly excruciating."

Heritage Enterprises issued a statement calling Bolster a disgruntled employee who has used numerous avenues to accuse the company of wrongdoing but says her allegations have been proven false.
