Kristen about the alleged drug usage

Sector believes his co-worker, Kristen, is using illegal drugs. Since both he and Kristen are surgeons, Hector is concerned that Kristen’s drug usage could result in injury to a patient. He tells the head surgeon, Franklin. Franklin immediately cancels Kristen’s surgeries for the day and meets with Kristen about the alleged drug usage. Kristen produces a bottle of prescription medicine she is required to take for hyperthyroid. The medication does not affect her ability to do her work. When Kristen learns it was Hector who reported her, Kristen claims that Hector committed an act of defamation when Hector told Franklin she used illegal drugs. Is Kristen right?
