CINCINNATI, Ohio– A husband in Cincinnati says his wife was overworked on the job and that led to her death, according to WLWT.
His wife, Beth Jasper, died in a car crash after falling asleep at the wheel following a 12-hour shift. She worked as a nurse at a hospital.
WLWT reports that Jim Jasper and his family are now suing his wife’s employer, Mercy Health, claiming exhausting hours due to nursing cuts and stress on the job led to her death.
A statement from Mercy Hospital to WLWT says, “Our hearts go out to the family. We do not comment on pending litigation.”
