Hamilton County government has reached a $180,000 settlement with a former public health nurse who filed suit in Federal Court after she was terminated for an alleged lack of productivity.
The suit says Nancy Beckham suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease.
She worked for the county for over nine years prior to her termination in February 2012.
Ms. Beckham said in the suit that the health department had a "race for the bell" policy, but due to her ailments she often could not beat other nurses to patients.
The settlement was worked out during mediation.
She was represented by attorney Donna Mikel.
