Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Employees Accuse Tennessee VA Hospital of Allowing Asbestos Exposure

A VA hospital located in Murfressboro, Tennessee is facing allegations that it knowingly risked the health of hospital employees by exposing them to asbestos.

According to current and former employees, the VA hospital failed to warn them about the presence of asbestos in the basement areas of the facility and failed to provide employees with respirators and other protective gear – even when employees requested such gear in writing.

An investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) corroborated the allegations; the hospital received 6 citations for asbestos-related violations. The hospital is now conducting air quality tests to determine the potential threat posed by asbestos.
