Marietta, GA, hospital officials say they're not to blame in sex assaults

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 13, 2009

Officials at WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA, say they are not responsible for the sexual assaults allegedly committed by three former employees. In February, seven women filed a lawsuit against the hospital and three men, who they say assaulted them during their hospital stays. WellStar has filed a motion with the State Court of Cobb County to have some of the claims in the lawsuit dismissed. The motion states that if the assaults occurred, the actions "were beyond the scope of their employment and contrary to the interests of the hospital."
