Latasha Bryant, Wanda Mosley, and Nikenda Morton have filed a whistleblower lawsuit against a Pittsfield Township, Michigan nursing home alleging they were fired after reporting patient neglect and abuse at the Whitehall Healthcare Center of Ann Arbor. The lawsuit names as defendants Whitehall and Coastal Administration Services LLC dba as LaVie Administrative Services and Shoreline Management Services dba La Vie Management Services, Ann Arbor News reported.

The three worked at the facility as certified nursing aides, and were involved in a Michigan investigation into the discovery of maggots in a patient’s genital area. The lawsuit says that one of the CNA’s was fired after filing a report that brought about the investigation, and the other two were fired after they discussed the discovery of the maggots with state investigators.

According to the lawsuit, the nursing home also tried to prevent employees from contributing to the investigation by suspending them while the investigation was active.

The lawsuit seeks relief under the Michigan Whistleblower Protection Act, and requests a jury trial. The plaintiffs seek unspecified compensatory damages for economic injury, which includes loss of employment, mental and emotional distress, humiliation, and court and attorney fees and costs.
