BANGOR — A jury has found that Eastern Maine Medical Center violated the law when supervisors asked a surgeon to improve her behavior in an employee corrective action plan.

The jury found Thursday that the hospital was wrong to tell Kristine Thayer to modify what it called her “disruptive behavior.” However, it awarded no damages to Thayer. It also did not support her allegation that the hospital retaliated against her for expressing concerns about another surgeon’s care and comments made about her.

The Bangor Daily News reports Thayer worked as a pediatric surgeon at the hospital from May 2005 until November 2007. She sued in federal court in 2009.
