Plaintiff Alleged More Than 2 Years of Wage Theft by Management Requiring Her to Clock Out Prior to Completing Patient Charts; Case Settled

Plaintiff alleged Auburn Regional Medical Center incentivized managers to keep payroll expense down, so her manager instructed her to clock out before doing charts from Sept. 2008 to Jan. 2011. Plaintiff also alleged that management used an intentionally high nurse-to-patient ratio to save money. Plaintiff claimed nurses would not be permitted to chart until relieved by the next shift, and once relieved, would have to clock out and chart off-the-clock. Additionally, Plaintiff alleged management created a hostile work environment for her after she complained about this practice. This case appears to have settled in Nov. 2012.
