Gregory Bee, a timekeeper in the patient care services department at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg, says he’s the whistleblower in the string of patient killings at the facility. Bee worked at the facility from 2015 until April 2019.
According to the lawsuit filed in the North District of West Virginia, Bee is alleging he was wrongfully suspended for reporting a number of suspicious deaths. He is seeking reinstatement of employment and to be back paid wages and compensatory damages, along with several other monetary compensations.
While he was employed at the VA, Bee was responsible for updating standard operating procedures in the patient care department. In August 2018, he was instructed by the hospital to amend various policies regarding insulin. This included the security, storage, and administration of insulin, as well as the language concerning hypoglycemia. At one point, Bee was pressed by a supervisor on why the changes were taking so long. Bee didn’t understand why the changes were so important and claims he was the only employee outside of upper management at the facility who knew about the changes.
