Aghevli called the termination proposal scary, because she said it appears to be a warning shot to ward off other potential whistleblowers.

"This feels obviously retaliatory, but worse than that I feel like I'm being used as a threat against other employees who might think about speaking up about patient care concerns and I resent that. I do not want to be used as a pawn," she testified on Tuesday.

 

Aghevli first reported concerns over hospital waitlists in 2014, just as a national scandal erupted over wait times, amid allegations patients had died waiting for care at a VA facility in Phoenix.
