Sex Abuse and Rape in Hospitals

Sex Abuse and Rape in Hospitals – A Sexual Abuse Attorney can Help

As a patient, a person visiting a hospital is under the care of professionals working there. The patient may be bed ridden, unconscious due to an accident or may be under the influence of sedatives. Either way, they are extremely vulnerable and sometimes completely helpless to defend themselves. Even patients with large and loving families cannot expect their loved ones to remain in their room for days on end. Sometimes there are even hospital rules prohibiting this.

Numerous instances have been reported by the patients later that they were sexually abused by one of the hospital staff when they were undergoing treatment there. As the hospital is entirely responsible for the safety of the patient, if any misdeed takes place on their premises and under their supervision, the patient is well within his or her legal rights to invoke and begin legal proceedings and file a civil lawsuit against them. If you have been the victim of child sexual abuse, hospital sexual abuse, sexually abused by a doctor or a nurse, this is actually your civic duty to make this situation known so it does not happen again. This nurse sexual abuse or hospital sexual assault could be an ongoing act.

However, it is extremely difficult to prove sexual abuse or rape that has occurred in a hospital. Your sexual abuse attorney will have hard time collecting the evidence right from under from their noses. Since the witnesses, if there are any, are colleagues of the offender and employee of the same hospital, the hospital administration tries every trick in the book to silence them. Only an effective sexual abuse lawyer will know how to manage the precise task of collecting the evidence and fighting the case on behalf of their client who was violated when they were completely helpless.

The hospital administration can be tried for negligent hiring or supervision since they have failed to monitor and perform the necessary background checks of the professional before hiring. The Rogatinsky Firm has managed to bring to justice the offenders of sexual abuse on many occasions. The Rogatinsky Firm is managed by Florida attorney and sexual abuse advocate Samuel Rogatinsky.

Hospitals have been made to compensate many victims for the trauma caused to the sexual abuse victims who were also their patients. These patients would have been better off in some cases just staying home. The only way to begin the healing process is to expose the sexual abusers and the institutions and hospitals that protect these individuals or monsters.
