Comatose Nursing Home Patient Sexually Assaulted by Nurse

The guardians of a comatose woman have filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit against the nursing home where their loved one was sexually assaulted by a male nurse. The nursing home abuse lawsuit claims that the center should have known that the male employee’s conduct would violate the woman’s privacy and dignity. The man pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery after the elderly abuse. He was sentenced last week to six months in prison for the sexual abuse. Nursing Homes must ensure that they hire employees who are not prone to commit sexual abuse. If you or a loved one has experienced elderly sexual abuse, find a Chicago lawyer.
