Who is responsible for sexual assault at a hospital?
Louisville Law Firm Frequently Asked Questions Video
Surprisingly, sexual assaults occur in hospitals and other medical facilities a lot more often than we would like to admit. Hospitals can be held responsible when they are careless in the practice privileges, they extend to physicians, or if they’re careless in their hiring policies, if they don’t do adequate background checks on their agents and their employees, and when they do that they jeopardize their patients who are often people who are very sick or injured in a defenseless position, not able to fend for themselves or speak up for themselves and at the Slechter Law Firm, we’d like to be a voice for those people. We’d like to protect them and in the process, protect future patients of that hospital or that nursing home.
