These former team members became disgruntled and attempted to create some bad publicity within Nashville. They contacted the local health board and some federal investigators became involved. The Department of Health then filed numerous false, assumptive charges. They were later learned to be unfounded and were ultimately dropped. Most health board investigations can typically never be completed without taking some form of a “scalp”, as the attorneys stated.
