Doctor Sues HCA Inc. Over Firing

Tampa doctor sued HCA Inc., alleging she was fired from a physician-staffing company because she complained about low staffing levels at the emergency room of the chain's Brandon Regional Hospital. Dr. Wanda Espinoza-Cruz, alleged that so few doctors were available during a January 2014 night shift that a man with 'obvious stroke symptoms' was forced to wait four hours for medical care. A CT scan later showed blood on his brain, her suit says. In another instance, she said a patient endured a similarly long wait despite signs of hyperglycemia excessive blood sugar which can lead to a coma if untreated. Espinoza-Cruz's suit, filed Feb. 4, comes as Nashville-based HCA, is promoting short wait times at its emergency rooms. According to the eight-page complaint, Espinoza-Cruz, an osteopathic doctor, completed her residency in 2011 and joined EM-I Medical Services that August. She was assigned as a full-time ER physician to Brandon Regional, where she maintained an unblemished personnel file. That changed after Jan. 2, 2014. She said she reported for work at 7 p.m. to find a standing-room-only crowd in the emergency department. After asking why more doctors weren't working that night, a nursing supervisor told her that she no longer had the authority to call in doctors, Espinoza-Cruz said in her suit. Two days later, Espinoza-Cruz met with Brandon Regional chief executive officer Bland Eng to complain. Nine days after that she was fired. According to her suit, Eng said during their meeting that, he knew there was a problem, but that he had talked to corporate and that the emergency room staffing model was untouchable because of HCA's relationship with (staffing company) EMCare. EMCare gives a different reason for her dismissal, that she violated a company policy. She said an EMCare vice president told her she was caught trying to launch her own physician-staffing company and enlist Brandon Regional as a client.
