Former Veterans Affairs Nurse and Whistleblower Takes on VA and Wins EEOC Case

By Rebecca DeNofrio | May 6, 2018

A former Department of Veterans Affairs nurse, Diane Suter has won her Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case against the Agency. It took nearly five years, but an Administrative judge has ruled in her favor awarding her with non-pecuniary damages, back pay and legal fees.


The only thing that Suter ever wanted to do was to be a nurse. She has lived a full life of service helping patients in various capacities; from working in a Trauma Center to working as a Nurse Manager in a private practice to her last job of seventeen years working at the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System (SA VAHCS). Nursing is what she loved to do, but that all has come to an end because of what Suter alleges was a hostile work environment and retaliation within the Agency due to her disability.


Her plight first began in 2013 when the IV (intravenous) team she had been working on since 2004 was disbanded and she was moved to a job on the floor.


This move created problems for Suter for several reasons: the patient load had significantly increased, she had to learn a new computerized system and also become knowledgeable on new medications. Added to those problems were complications from a disability which made the job extremely difficult for her, spurring her to file a Reasonable Accommodation Request (RAR) in September of 2013.


While the RAR was being processed Suter was assigned a temporary assignment but in November of 2013 the Agency denied her accommodation which lead her to interview for a job in primary care. Her abilities and limitations were discussed at the interview and it was agreed the job would be a good fit for her. The problems started when the nurse she was replacing decided not to leave.


Instead of being given a position where she would easily be able to handle the workload of a four hundred patient panel—the number of patients seen in the team—she was permanently reassigned on December 1, 2013, as a Reasonable Accommodation to a different team in the Outpatient Clinic.


The team had a thirteen-hundred patient panel, which resulted in a tremendous burden on the nurse. Suter was forced into a job that was more difficult than the one she had left. The new job did not take into consideration her limitations due to her disability which gave her no choice but to file another RAR in April. She remained in the position while waiting for the Agency to approve the request.


During her time in that job, Suter claims that her Nurse Manager confronted her for not remaining within the nurse’s matrix (requirements) of getting a patient scheduled within two weeks. This was not possible with the large number of patients that needed to be scheduled.


To avoid the waitlists that created the scandal at the Phoenix VA, the nurses were told to circumvent the system to make it appear that patients were being scheduled properly. They would have to document the call as if the patient had asked that day to be scheduled for a specific date when in reality that date was the first one available.


Suter protested and became a whistleblower by reporting her concerns to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The hospital was reviewed, and her complaint was upheld when the Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that seventy-six percent of patient wait times were being zeroed out. It was after her reporting these issues that the situation went from bad to worse.


On July 9, 2014, the Agency issued Suter a memorandum which presented her with the options of resignation, disability retirement, regular retirement, or reassignment. Two days later she received a Notice of Opportunity to Improve Memo from her Nurse Manager. Starting on July 14, 2014, she had to begin meeting weekly with her Nurse Manager to discuss her job performance.


During these meetings, Suter describes an atmosphere where everything she did was picked apart. The Nurse Manager alleged failings in Suter’s patient cases, but there was no discussion on how she was to improve. In one instance she was accused of not asking patients all the questions that she was required to ask when the answers did not get recorded properly due to an error in the computer system.


Suter was blamed for issues with patient cases that were not even hers. There was one case where she was being held responsible for a patient who was triaged while she was away on vacation. Prior to this, Suter had never received an unsatisfactory evaluation at any of her previous jobs or during the time that she worked for the VA.


Suter states that even if the Nurse Manager’s allegations of failings were true, which she adamantly maintains they are not, they would still only account for less than two out of every one thousand cases she handled.


The Agency denied her Reasonable Accommodation Request on August 18, 2014, even though there were several areas that she was willing and qualified to work in, such as Home Health Nursing, Utilization Review and the Choice Program. The very next day Suter was detailed to work in the Business Office until she chose which option she would agree to. Suter instead decided to leave work on August 20, 2014, and seek legal representation.


In November of 2014, Suter made a third Reasonable Accommodation Request through her attorney for a position in Home Based Patient Care (HBPC). The Agency responded on March 26, 2015, stating that Suter could resign, retire, apply for medical disability retirement or she could be removed from federal service. On May 16, 2015, the Agency fired her. Suter decided to take the Agency to court on allegations of discrimination due to her disability.


Fast forward to May 1, 2019, the date that she received a final decision from the EEOC Administrative Judge, nearly five years later. Diane Suter is, fortunately, one of the less than two percent who has received a favorable outcome from the court. The Administrative Judge found in his decision (EEOC No. 540-2015-00289X) that the “Complainant met her burden of proving beyond a preponderance of the evidence that she was discriminated against on the basis of disability as alleged… [that] the Agency was nonetheless required to consider whether there was an available position Complainant was otherwise qualified to perform… [and that Suter]…served successfully as a nurse for seventeen years…”.


The Administrative Judge also stated that he “…finds the Agency’s efforts to determine if the Complainant was otherwise qualified for the HBPC nurse position were unsatisfactory… [and that] …Complainant met her burden of proving by a preponderance of evidence she could perform the essential functions of that position”. The Administrative Judge went on to say in his decision that “…the Agency violated the Rehabilitation Act by failing to reassign Complainant to the HBPC nurse position as an accommodation.”


The Department of Veterans Affairs has been riddled with scandal since its inception; Veteran suicides, waitlists, impaired providers, poor patient care and whistleblower retaliation are just a few of the thing that have plagued the Department. The reader may ask why is it like this? Suter has an answer, “You rise to your level of incompetence at the VA, people at the top are the most corrupt incompetent people that they have at the VA, and it’s because they are the ones willing to look the other way.”
