Abstract

Abstract: Healthcare professionals who raise concerns about workplace safety or other problems should be praised as heroes and changemakers. However, some whistleblowers face retaliation for speaking out, and the incidence of retaliation cases against these employees has spiked during the COVID-19 pandemic. This article reflects on the role of whistleblowers and their importance to public accountability.
