Sexual Assault Lawsuit Filed Against Palm Springs Hospital in Hialeah;

Video captured nurse sexually assaulting patient

WHAT: JEFF HERMAN (www.hermanlaw.com), a nationally-recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against PALM SPRINGS GENERAL HOSPITAL for the sexual assault of a male patient by Rene Martinez, a hospital employee who was later arrested for the assault.

According to the Complaint:

  • On or about September 15, 2014, JOHN DOE presented to the emergency room at PSGH with complaints of leg and back pain. JOHN DOE was admitted to the emergency room on the same day. 
  • JOHN DOE was medicated at the Hospital, causing JOHN DOE to become drowsy.  While resting in bed in his hospital gown, Nurse Martinez provided medical treatment to JOHN DOE, exiting and entering the room on several occasions.
  • JOHN DOE fell asleep and woke up to Nurse Martinez rubbing his upper thigh and then placing his hand inside JOHN DOE’s boxers. JOHN DOE asked Nurse Martinez what he was doing, and Nurse Martinez stated “I’m just checking to see if you are okay”, and quickly scurried out of the room.
  • JOHN DOE was afraid to scream for help as he was medicated, drowsy and at the mercy of the Hospital’s care.  In order to capture the wrongdoing of Nurse Martinez, JOHN DOE placed his cellular phone on his right shoulder as he pretended to sleep. 
  • JOHN DOE activated the video record feature on his cellular phone when he felt Nurse Martinez touching his left leg and left hip again. As captured on videotape, Nurse Martinez grabbed JOHN DOE’s penis and swiftly rubbed JOHN DOE’s penis in an upward and downward motion.  
  • JOHN DOE asked Nurse Martinez what he was doing, and the nurse responded, “nothing, nothing”, and scurried out once again.

JOHN DOE NO. 126 v. PALM SPRINGS GENERAL HOSPITAL, INC. OF HIALEAH was filed yesterday in Miami-Dade County.

Jeff Herman, the attorney for the victim in this case, stated: “A hospital must protect its patients from sexual assault by hospital employees.”

WHO: The victim in this case, John Doe, and his attorney, Jeff Herman, will speak at the news conference.
