Muncie Nurse Accused of Drugging, Sexually Assaulting Patient

A nurse at Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital was formally charged in May 2018 for allegedly sexually assaulting a patient three times while she was under his care at the hospital. 28-year-old Nathaniel Abraham Mosco was charged with felony sexual battery on May 13, 2018.

Mosco was arrested in January 2018 when a woman told police that he fondled her three separate times at the IU Health location in Muncie. The victim is a woman in her 70s. The woman told investigators that she was given pain medication she hadn’t asked for prior to two of the assaults.

Mosco allegedly told the woman he needed to clean medical equipment before abusing her and telling her he wanted to “make her feel good.”

According to Indiana’s licensing database, there was an “emergency suspension” of Mosco’s nursing license in early February.

Legal Recourse for Survivors of Sexual Assault by Medical Professionals

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is a former prosecutor who now represents survivors of sexual assault in civil cases. Here is Jeff’s perspective on how survivors of assault by doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals can find justice:

We all place our trust in doctors and nurses at various points throughout our lives. Most of the medical professionals in our communities are indeed trustworthy people, but unfortunately, there have also been reports of sexual assault by medical professionals in all 50 states. Sexual predators are often found in medicine and other fields that involve working in positions of trust and authority. When a patient is victimized by a nurse, doctor, or another medical professional, they have legal rights for justice in both criminal and civil courts.

While the police handle the investigation and prosecution of sexual predators, survivors may also take direct legal action by filing a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator and/or the medical facility where the assaults occurred. In order to have a case for a lawsuit against the medical facility, your legal team will need to establish negligence. For example, a hospital might be considered negligent if the perpetrator was not given a background check before being hired or the facility ignored previous complaints of sexual misconduct.

If you or a loved one is a survivor of sexual assault by a medical professional, you can find justice for the trauma you’ve. To learn more about your legal options, consider contacting an experienced sexual assault survivors lawyer.
