HOSPITAL SUIT

As the COVID-19 pandemic was ramping up aggressively in Minnesota in May, Cliff Willmeng was fired from his job as an Emergency Department nurse at United Hospital in St. Paul, for wearing hospital-issued scrubs on duty while caring for COVID-19 patients, and then defying the hospital policy against nurses wearing uniforms that the hospital has to launder. Willmeng is suing the hospital to get his job back, saying his actions were compelled by personal safety, and the policy behind his May 8 firing was nonsensical.
