Clarksburg VA Medical Center Faces Whistleblower Lawsuit After 8 Deaths

Published on Sep 4, 2020 at 10:23 am in In the News.

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.

West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry Indicted on Federal Charges

Published on Jun 28, 2018 at 12:45 pm in In the News.

On June 20, 2018, at 7:00 AM, suspended Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry was arrested and indicted on 22 federal charges in Charleston, West Virginia. The Judicial Investigation Commission originally filed 32 charges against Loughry on June 6, 2018.

His charges, which violate the state judicial code, include 16 counts of mail fraud, three counts of making false statements to a federal agent, two counts of wire fraud, and one count of witness tampering.

If Loughry is found guilty and convicted, he faces up to 395 years, a fine of up to $5.5 million, and three years of supervised release.

While the courts originally called for the suspension of his license to practice law, it has only been deferred. This, however, will become a secondary issue, as the federal indictment will take precedence over the final decision on his law license.
