I had not heard about it but definently want to know who it was, if it truly did happen. I have a lot of good friends and family who depend on that hospital and that would be tragic.

I heard about that. They said that a CNA did it to someone in ICU. That is really bad when you can't be safe even when your in the hospital. What is this world coming to?

Yeah, it was my husband that was assaulted while in ICU. The CNA's name was Roger Leach. He was fired 2 days after we filed the complaint. His wife is named Kathy, she still works there and has filed for divorce, apparently it is not the first time it has happened. We have learned through the grapevine that he was fired from 2 previous jobs because of the same thing. We are trying to verify this, as is the DA's office.

IF anyone has info as to who he has done this to before, or where please let us know. Also, when my husband went to the hospital to find out what all was going on with their investigation, he was escorted out. THey did not have enough respect for him after he was mistreated the way he was to even give him an answer...I would not recommend that hospital to anyone. The LaFollette Police are the ones that told us he was fired.

If this it true why is it not on any news channel or at least the news papers, why is this being swept under the rug. What is this perverts name? We have the right to know!!!!!1

We were instructed by our attorney not to make it public until the police investigation is complete!

What I don't understand is why this behavior was not disclosed on a background check. I realize that a former employer is hesitant to give a bad reference because of the threat of lawsuits but why doesn't a potential employer ask the question Would you hire this person again?, and if the answer is no that pretty much sums it up. The information could be kept confidential. The former employer would not even have to go into the details. It would however protect the prospective employer from hiring a deviant.

I personally know of a woman who suffers from cancer that also had been mistreated and (possibly) molested, I say that in that way because she was on a lot of meds and she said herself that she wasn't sure if she was dreaming or the meds made her feel that way about what was being done to her. I do know she wouldn't file a claim because she didn't want to falsley accuse anyone of such a crime and I also know she wouldn't lie about it, but she was on morphine and other strong meds, funny thing is the same name appears here in discussion.

I hatate that this incident has happened it makes the whole hospitaal look bad.
however just because of one bad egg don't count the rest of the hosptial out. this has been the first hospital I have worked where I don't see nurses stealing drugs, on drugs. they go an extra mile to be there for the families when they are going through trying times.
kathy IS a very nice woman! I am horrified by what she is having to go through.

I love the hospital and thje people I work with there. we might not have the technology that knoxville does to care for patients or resources but one thing is for sure the employees make up for it with THEIR HEARTS.

this was a rare incident that is the first I have ever seen or heard of at our facility.
