Operating room nurse prohibited from working after drug rehab cannot support ADA failure to hire claim.

Ogletree Deakins • June 10, 2013
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in a situation involving safety issues, a federal district court in Connecticut determined that an operating room nurse was not qualified for protection under the ADA because he was weeks away from the end of a year-long prohibition - imposed during drug rehab - against working in an operating room or around narcotics. Talmadge v. Stamford Hosp., D.Conn, No. 3:11-cv-01239, May 31, 2013. The more difficult issue, which received little attention from the court, was whether the nurse’s unsuccessful subsequent communications regarding employment after completion of the prohibition term could support an ADA claim.
