HealthSouth Corp.

A $1.4 million jury verdict has been found in the lawsuit filed on behalf of Dr. Helen Schilling. The suit claimed that Dr. Schilling, former director of medical services at HealthSouth Houston Rehabilitation Institute, was fired after she refused to illegally drum up patients for the center. The jury found that the company violated state and federal law by asking Schilling to keep patients hospitalized when they should have been discharged, and to admit patients who didn't need treatment.
