SAN DIEGO, May 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP announces that it is investigating whether certain officers and directors of Halyard Health, Inc. (NYSE: HYH) violated state and/or federal laws. Halyard provides health and healthcare supplies and solutions worldwide.
During the most recent headlined outbreak of the Ebola virus, more than 500 healthcare workers died of the disease. Personal Protective Equipment became essential to preventing the deaths of even more. On May 1, 2016, "60 Minutes" aired a report that Halyard knowingly provided defective surgical gowns to US workers at the height of Ebola crisis. Bernard Vezeau was interviewed by Anderson Cooper of "60 Minutes." Vezeau worked for Halyard Health, which was part of the Kimberly-Clark corporation until November 2014. Halyard manufactured a surgical gown called "MICROCOOL." Vezeau stated regarding the gowns, "They would leak. They would leak. When we pressure tested them, especially in the seams." Vezeau further stated that Halyard aggressively marketed the gowns even though the gowns were not consistently meeting industry standards.
