The Professional Consequences of Whistleblowing by Nurses.
McDonald, Sally; Ahern, Kathy
Journal of Professional Nursing, v16 n6 p313-21 Nov-Dec 2000
A study of 70 nurses self-described as whistleblowers and 25 who did not repot misconduct showed that whistleblowers experienced severe reprisals (demotion, reprimand, threats, rejection, pressure to resign). There were few professional consequences for those who remained silent. (SK)
