Nationwide, counting all kinds of workers, about 50% of whistleblowers soon lose their jobs, regardless of whatever laws may or may not exist in their particular State. (According to Business Week.)
All they wind up with is a sense of moral satisfaction (which along with $3 can get them a cup of coffee at Starbucks, where they can read the want ads).

BUT any facility can look and find reasons to fire a whistle blower from digging through thier charts, interviewing family, patients co-workers on and on. No nurse is perfect and when looking, each single "mistake" no matter how minor will add up and up and up.
Any whistle blower will be under the microscope PERIOD!
Wish I could argue otherwise... the law is needed for basic protection... but it doesn't amount to much in the end
