A recently filed lawsuit accuses Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center of failing to protect a woman from a psychiatric patient who tried to sexually assault her, according to an article on the Las Vegas Review-Journal website.
The woman was a patient in the Las Vegas hospital’s emergency room alongside a patient with psychiatric issues. The lawsuit claims he was unguarded and unrestrained.
A nurse or aide walked the woman to a restroom, and the woman believed the door had been locked, though it had not. The lawsuit claims the man watched her enter the restroom and followed her inside.
The lawsuit, which names the hospital, Valley Health System LLC and Universal Health Services Inc., along with Centennial Hills Hospital CEO Sajit Pullarkat, seeks unspecified damages.
