The complaint also alleges "jarring medical neglect" during the coronavirus pandemic, including a refusal to test detainees with symptoms and fabricating medical records. The whistleblower, a nurse identified as Dawn Wooten who worked at the centre, expressed concerns about the high of hysterectomies - an operation involving the removal of all or part of the uterus - performed on Spanish-speaking women there.
