Family of Ohio nurse killed in crash sues hospital



Published: Thu, November 7, 2013 @ 3:50 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The family of a southwestern Ohio nurse killed in a car crash is suing the hospital where she worked, saying that stress and extra hours from short-staffing led to her death.

Beth Jasper of Stonelick Township was killed the morning of March 18 as she was driving home after a night shift at The Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati. Her SUV went airborne, hit a tree and landed in a parking lot. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 38-year-old left behind her husband of nearly 14 years, James Jasper, a 6-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter. They filed a wrongful-death lawsuit today in Hamilton County court, seeking unspecified damages.

A hospital spokeswoman said she hadn’t yet heard of the lawsuit and couldn’t immediately comment.

I surprised there haven't been more lawsuits like this. Employers are working employees hard to keep from hiring additional help and people are being run ragged.
