Former Nurse Sues Oregon Hospital Over Harassment

March 11, 2009

A suit by a former oncology nurse at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Oregon says the hospital ignored her complaints of being sexually harassed by the previous director of the hospital’s dialysis program.

The Gazette-Times in Corvallis, Ore., reports Sharon Carter filed suit in Benton County Circuit Court over a series of unwanted sexual advances by Dr. Mohammed S. Mohammed over five years starting in 2002.

Carter alleges that her supervisors dismissed repeated complaints of harassment and eventually fired her.

The suit seeks $300,000 in damages.

A hospital spokeswoman declined to comment.

Last year, the state Board of Medical Examiners revoked Mohammed’s license.
