UPDATE/CORRECTION: Commenters have pointed out that the nurse was not fired — she was ordered to retire.
Remember the lesbian veteran who was seeking help for depression?
Remember the horrible Marine Corps nurse at the VA who harangued her for three hours about her “lifestyle of sin” and whether she’d been “saved by Jesus Christ”?
“The board was able to substantiate material portions of the veteran’s claims,” Smith said. “VA North Texas Health Care System will continue to provide an environment where veterans can receive the physical and emotional healing that they desire and deserve. As such, we remain committed to respecting diversity and providing the best possible care to all veterans. Our commitment to equal rights remains strong as we practice our core values of integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect and excellence. Ms. Pandithurai will retire from federal service effective January 21, 2012.”
