Employment in Ohio is "at-will," meaning that an employer can terminate an employee for any reason or no reason, as long as it's not in violation of a law such as the anti-discrimination laws. Based on the information provided the hospital could let you go for breaking policy; however, if the hospital has a progressive discipline policy that if follows for other employees but didn't in your case then the question is why not. If the reason is because of your race or another protected trait then you have a discrimination case. You should consult with an employment lawyer.
