4 Charged in Hospital Rape Case; Hospital Employees Failed to Report Abuse

Four hospital employees have been charged with failure to report sexual assault after a stroke patient was sexually assaulted while incapacitated. As police continue to investigate, more details come to light. The victim was incapacitated following treatment for a stroke and was not able to relate her hospital sexual abuse until almost a month later.

This case shows an egregious example of hospital staff failing to report hospital sexual abuse.
