Six more sue Hartford-based St. Francis Hospital in sex abuse case

Hartford Courant, May 13, 2010

Six more people have filed suit against Hartford, CT-based St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center alleging abuse by George Reardon, MD, who worked at the hospital for 30 years and is believed to have sexually abused as many as 500 children. The complaint alleges that the hospital was negligent in failing to stop Reardon or supervise him adequately. It also accuses the hospital of systematically covering up Reardon's sexual misconduct and following a policy of discouraging the spread of information about sexual misconduct involving doctors and minors, the Hartford Courant reports.
