Ex-Radio Tech Jonathan McIntire Charged with Sexually Assaulting Patient, Loses License

A former KU Medical Center radiologic technologist has been accused of sexually assaulting a patient and the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts has suspended his license.

41-year-old Jonathan McIntire was arrested in May 2019 after a patient reported that he had sexually assaulted her during a diagnostic imaging exam at the center on February 13, 2019. The patient reported the alleged assault that day and McIntire was placed on administrative leave. In May, police charged him with aggravated sexual battery.

The KU Medical Center has since fired McIntire for this alleged sexual assault.

On January 13, 2020, the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts suspended McIntire's medical license, ruling that allowing him to continue practicing "would constitute an imminent danger to the public health and safety."

McIntire had been licensed to practice medicine in Kansas since 2014. His last court appearance was in June 2019.

Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault by Medical Professionals

No patient ever expects a medical professional to violate their trust by sexually assaulting them, but sexual assault is a major problem in the medical field. We've asked attorney contributor Reed Martens to share some of his thoughts on the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by medical professionals:

Medical professionals are trusted to provide their patients with quality care and to treat them with respect. But sadly, not all medical professionals are trustworthy people. There have been thousands of reports of doctors, nurses, technologists, and others in the medical field sexually assaulting patients they've been trusted to care for. The victims of these despicable crimes deserve justice.

Reporting these sexual assaults to law enforcement is an important part of the justice-seeking process. Additionally, it's important to ask if the medical facility was negligent in a way that allowed the sexual assault to happen - such as failing to respond to previous complaints of sexual misconduct by the perpetrator. In cases of negligence, victims of medical professional sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit against the facility where they were assaulted.
