Sexual abuse in healthcare is more common than you might think, and healthcare professionals are in a particularly powerful position when treating patients. This presentation will explore the prevalence of sexual abuse committed by healthcare and allied professionals, and the potential liability faced by the facilities that employ such professionals.  We will provide risk management strategies for preventing sexual abuse lawsuits and provide tips on how to handle such cases should they occur.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Jonathan D. Rubin, Partner, Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan LLP and Santosh Chitalia, Associate, Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan LLP.They discuss:

  • Patients trust medical professionals in order to discuss their body and/or mental state.  Certain actions by medical professionals, even if not intentional, can be seen as exploiting patient trust and can be seen as abuse.
  • If a healthcare professional is found to have sexually abused a patient, the facility that employs them can possibly be liable for negligent hiring and supervision of that employee.  This is especially true when the facility knew, or should have known, that the employee had tendencies toward abuse. 
  • There are certain actions that can be implemented by facilities that can assist in preventing sexual abuse and lawsuits alleging such abuse.
