Sexual Abuse by a Medical Practitioner Attorney

Sexual Abuse by Doctors, Nurses, Psychologist, Dentist, Care Takers

When we go to a hospital or a doctors, dentists or psychologists office, we expect professionalism andDoctor concern for the physical and mental ailments we are suffering from. We are often vulnerable and when a pediatrician, gynecologist, nurse or care practitioner breaks this trust, the emotional and physical abuse can be devastating.

According to the American Medical Association (AMA), sexual contact that occurs concurrent with the patient-physician relationship constitutes sexual misconduct. Sexual contact or sexual relations between physicians and patients are unethical. This prohibition against sexual relations with patients is incorporated into the Hippocratic Oath.

Doctors and medical professionals cannot have sex with or sexually abuse or assault a patient. States like Florida have laws (The Florida Statute Law) that prohibit it.

As in so many cases of sexual abuse, many of these cases go unreported and victims are left ashamed and left alone to deal with the emotional pain and physical trauma that these medical professionals have caused. In other situations, doctors assault patients by engaging in sexual contact with incompetent or unconscious patients.
