Inappropriate Touching To Unconscious Patient At Hospital Could Lead To Lawsuit

Comments Off

Imagine going to the hospital for a scheduled procedure. Imagine once there you are given a medication to help you though that procedure. Now imagine waking up and discovering some of your clothes have been removed or changed on an intimate part of your body which had nothing to do with the procedure itself. That is exactly what a Piedmont Fayette Hospital patient recently experienced after going to have an MRI done.

According to wsbtv.com:

She says she is clear about the inappropriate touching that took place late last month that allegedly involved a hospital technician that she trusted to do a medical procedure.

“I don’t know how my shirt got up, I still can’t remember what was said or done to get my shirt to up,” says the alleged victim.

“I really did not know what to say or do, but I am determined this will not happen to another victim or another woman,” she says.

Although no one wants to think or believe these types of things can happen, the reality of the situation is that it happens all too often. If someone is sick enough to violate someone in such a deviant way they ought to be held accountable for their actions. It is the only way they will ever be prevented from doing it to others. Should the facts of this case pan out to show this technician did what has initially been alleged, both criminal charges and a large civil lawsuit should be considered.
