Week Discussion: Whistleblower Protections

Whistleblower protections – what would you do?

All healthcare professionals are mandatory reporters. Mandatory reporting covers a wide range of topics, from violence or abuse reporting to possible healthcare fraud reporting. Those who move forward to report a case of possible fraud are known as “relators.” Organizations and compliance officers, along with attorneys, may label a relator as a “whistleblower.” Whistleblowers may have a moral compass that is strongly pointed toward doing the right thing at the risk of their own job or career.

Analyze what current protections are offered and if this is enough to safeguard a whistleblower who acts in good faith. After conducting your own independent research, provide an example from the readings or literature that analyzed a whistleblower case. Did the right thing happen? Were you satisfied with the outcome?
