Arizona Republic:  “A former surgical technician at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center claims she was wrongly fired for blowing the whistle about unsanitary conditions in the hospital’s operating rooms.  In a lawsuit against Banner, Susan Gipson of Peoria says the hospital ignored bugs in operating-room light fixtures, holes in operating room walls, rusty surgical instrument, mold and dirt on air vents, and blood and biological fluids “strewn around the (operating rooms).” The lawsuit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court.”
