  • Columbia OBGYN Patients

Doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel have a duty to diligently act in the best interest of a patient under their care.  This obligation is especially sensitive in the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OBGYN). 

The undue influence a physician or other medically-authorized individual can have in this setting can result in lifelong damage. These long-standing damages can include, but are not limited to, emotional, psychological, and social issues—and, resultantly, the patient’s family, friends and coworkers as well. Sadly, a medical professional inclined to sexually abuse a patient is unlikely to engage in this misconduct only once—which raises the specter of habitual activity within the same facility or office. 

OBGYN abuse can occur at the hands of doctors, nurses, aids, or any other medical personnel employed at: 

  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient centers
  • Private practices 
  • Psychiatric facilities
  • Physical therapy clinics
  • Rehabilitation centers

For patients who cannot immediately advocate for themselves, it is crucial to be cognizant of the signs of sexual abuse.
