A hospital in Iowa finds itself in court after a prospective employee said she was refused the job because of a preexisting medical condition they failed to accommodate for.

Jennifer Connor, who is a resident of Indiana, applied for the position of organ transplant financial coordinator at the Iowa Methodist Transplant Center. She was offered the position so long as she passed a mandatory drug test.

What seemed like an easy task was made considerably more difficult by Connor's diagnosed medical disorder: paruresis, or shy bladder syndrome.

Iowa Health Systems, now known as UnityPoint, comprises Iowa Methodist along with several other health facilities around the state. A representative from the organization denied comment on the impending litigation of the lawsuit, the Des Moines Register reported.

When Connor was unable to successfully complete the drug test due to her condition the transplant center denied her the job.

Court documents state that Connor, a recent graduate of Des Moines University, could overcome the affliction by using single stalls or a steady stream of water to cover the sound of her urination. However, these requests were denied by the facility at which she took the drug screening. In addition, Connor has described being hassled by the nursing staff.

"While in the waiting room, Conner began to experience significant physical discomfort because she needed to urinate, but could not," said the court documents. "She also began to feel increasingly anxious and began to cry."

Connor's lawsuit seeks compensation for legal fees, lost pay, and emotional distress as well as orders the hospital to stop from discriminating against employees with diagnosed medial disorders, according to the Associated Press.

According to the International Paruresis Association, shy bladder syndrome is a social anxiety disorder that deters those inflicted from urinating in public or close to another person. It also states that "Hundred, if not thousands," of US employees have been unjustly fired due to uncooperative enterprises.

Under 2009's Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act paruresis is eligible as a medical disorder that calls for certain legal dispensations.
