An employee from Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, located in Bozeman, Mont., has filed a lawsuit contending he was fired after reporting to federal authorities safety concerns involving radiation treatment and nuclear waste storage. Lawrence Slate, a medical physicist, filed the lawsuit in a state court. The Plaintiff contends he was fired in April in retaliation for reporting safety concerns to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
In the lawsuit, the Plaintiff says the hospital lost a vial of radioactive waste and that he believes it went to a landfill. When he voiced concerns to the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer, the plaintiff says he was rebuffed. He also says the cancer center treated patients with radiation without clear evidence they had cancer.
