Patient Alleges Sexual Assault By Certified Nursing Assistant

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) June 12, 2014 — A female surgery patient alleged a Certified Nursing Assistant sexually assaulted her and that the hospital did not respond appropriately to her complaints.

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit alleged that her sexual assault was not the first time the accused had assaulted patients and that he had been doing it for over a decade. Numerous woman had complained during that time, but nothing was done until recently when the complainant was told the person had been fired,” Daren Monroe, a Litigation Funding Corporation spokesperson said.

Documentation filed with the court indicates she is filing for medical malpractice and further alleges dependent adult abuse by Certified Nursing Assistant, Guillermo Diaz. After a suspension, the state of California Department of Public Health revoked period Diaz’s license to practice last year.

Los Angeles police launched an investigation into complaints by two former Cedars-Sinai patients asserting they had been sexually assaulted. During the course of the newest investigation, police uncovered two further historical accusations; one included a colleague alleging Diaz raped her at an office party. No charges were ever laid.

The latest accusation originated from a 43-year-old woman recovering from surgery to remove a tumor from her pancreas. In debilitating pain, the man said he would rub her back. Instead, he rubbed her breasts and groin area while she insisted he stop. Despite this complaint and the history of other allegations against the same man, the hospital permitted him to keep working there.

The emotional, mental and psychological pain suffered by this complainant was enough for her to file a lawsuit against the perpetrator and the hospital, alleging negligent hiring and retention of a man with a history of inappropriate sexual behavior.

Therapy to recover from a situation such as this is expensive and usually extensive. Finding funds to pay for such therapy may be a daunting task for this plaintiff. “She might want to consider filling out an application for a lawsuit loan, also referred to as litigation funding. She needs her attorney to work with her on this application. Once it is reviewed and assessed for winability in the courtroom, approved funds are then sent to the plaintiff’s bank account, usually in less than 48-hours,” Monroe says.
