Scottsdale Medical Worker Accused of Sexually Assaulting Patient

A Scottsdale medical worker was arrested on Wednesday and charged with sexually assaulting a partially-sedated patient at Integrated Pain Consultants.

38-year-old Xavier Uziel Perez has been accused of sexually assaulting a 48-year-old woman who was recovering from back treatment at the facility near Shea Boulevard and 96th Street on June 25, 2018.

The woman told police that she was regaining consciousness after treatment when the alleged assault occurred. She reported this incident to police shortly after it occurred, which led to a several-month investigation.

Police investigated the claims and gathered forensic evidence before arresting Perez. They say Perez admitted to the sexual assault during a police interview.

Perez has worked at every branch of Integrated Pain Consultants in the Valley and was still employed at the Scottsdale facility when he was arrested. There are no other reported incidents, but police are concerned that there may be additional victims and detectives are continuing to investigate.

The Scottsdale Police Department has asked anyone with information related to this case to contact them at 480-312-5000.

Legal Recourse for Survivors of Sexual Assault by Healthcare Workers

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin represents survivors of sexual assault in civil lawsuits, helping them fight for the justice they deserve. We’ve asked Kevin to add some information on the legal options available to survivors of sexual assault by healthcare workers:

Healthcare patients deserve to be treated with respect and provided with the best possible standard of care. Most healthcare employees treat their patients well, but unfortunately, this field also has problems with sexual predators who exploit their positions of trust in order to abuse their patients. The perpetrators of these crimes deserve to be held accountable and their victims deserve justice.

In some situations, the facilities where these assaults occur also deserve to be held accountable for failing to keep their patients safe. For example, if a healthcare worker had been the subject of previous sexual misconduct complaints but the facility ignored these complaints, the facility could be considered negligent. In cases of negligence, victims of healthcare worker sexual assault may have grounds for a sexual assault lawsuit.

Are you or a loved one a survivor of sexual assault by a medical worker? You deserve answers and justice. To learn more about your legal options, consider contacting one of our experienced sexual assault survivors lawyers.
