Maine nurse sues Nevada company over what she calls a misleading job offer

(The Republic) ROCKLAND, Maine — A Maine woman has sued a Nevada-based health care company for what she says was a misleading job offer.

Cynthia Littlefield of Warren says in the suit filed this week in Maine she was recruited for a job in California by Tenet Healthcare Corp. of Reno, Nev.

The registered nurse says in the suit she accepted the position of wound and ostomy coordinator at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, Calif. in April 2011.

Cynthia Littlefield of Warren says in the suit filed this week in Maine she was recruited for a job in California by Tenet Health care Corp. of Reno, Nev.

Upon beginning the job Littlefield says she realized there was no new wound care and ostomy care program at the hospital.

She is suing for $49,000 in costs she says she incurred in moving. She has since moved back to Maine.

A Tenet spokesman tells the Bangor Daily News (http://bit.ly/I6PFX0 ) that he had no comment.
