Physician Sexual Misconduct Attorneys – Protecting Abuse Victims Nationwide
A doctor is supposed to heal you and take care of you in your most vulnerable moments. They are supposed to provide the highest level of care to their patients and protect them from harm. When doctors or medical professionals use this trusted authority to sexually assault their patients, the psychological, emotional, and physical damage can last for years – if not forever. Patients who have been sexually assaulted by a psychiatrist, physician, or any other trusted medical professional, have a right to hold them accountable for their crimes, and for the damage they have caused.
Physician Sexual Assault is Traumatic
The Atlanta-Journal Constitution examined physician sexual abuse in every state, including rapes by OB/GYNs, fondling of unconscious patients by anesthesiologists and molestation by pediatricians. These doctors improperly touched their patients and sexually assaulted them while pretending to perform legitimate medical exams. Sometimes the patients were unconscious, sometimes they were not. Shockingly, few doctors were disciplined for their sexual misconduct and many were allowed to continue working and exploiting patients for years. In fact, of the 2,400 doctors that were publicly disciplined for sexual misconduct, half still have active medical licenses!
These violations are traumatic for patients. Most victims say nothing, often too confused or embarrassed to fully understand what happened. Even when they do realize that they’ve been sexually assaulted, many refuse to press charges because they believe that no one will take their word over a doctor’s. Sadly, when victims of physician sexual abuse do finally come forward and report the abuse, hospitals and health care organizations quietly sweep it under the rug or brush off accusations, hoping to avoid the bad publicity.
