Two brave nurses who went up against an “Old Boys Network”

Nurses Anne Mitchell and Vikilyn Galle were both working at a hospital in a small Texas town when they became increasingly concerned about the quality of care provided by one of the physicians. He was a family physician who started performing surgeries (and failed ones at that) on unwitting patients.

The nurses brought these issues up to hospital administration, but were ignored. When they sent an anonymous letter to the Texas Medical Board, they were fired. Then they were arrested. Listen to their shocking story (starting at the 7:33 mark).

Have you ever run up against an “Old Boys Network” at your place of employment? How did you handle it?
