Licensed Practical Nurse Accused of Sexual Contact with Patient at West Vue Nursing Home

Attorney Analysis: In the second section of this story, sex abuse lawyer Reed Martens will discuss the legal rights of nursing home abuse victims and their families.

A licensed practical nurse who worked at the West Vue Nursing Home in West Plains was arrested in September 2019 for allegedly having sexual contact with a patient.

43-year-old Steven J. Stroman has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of first-degree sexual conduct with a nursing facility resident.

Stroman is accused of having sexual contact with a patient on two separate occasions in late August and early September of 2019. He was reportedly working as a weekend change nurse at West Vue at the time of the alleged crimes, according to the police.

The incidents reportedly happened on August 30 and September 7 and involved a 68-year-old female patient. The resident told police that the first sexual encounter was consensual, but that Stroman did not receive permission before the second incident of sexual contact.

Can I Sue For Sexual Abuse in a Nursing Home?

Attorney contributor Reed Martens represents sex abuse victims and their families, including nursing home abuse victims, in civil lawsuits. We've asked Reed to add some commentary on the legal rights of nursing home abuse victims and their families:

Quality care, respect, and the safety of residents should all be priorities for nursing homes. But sadly, nursing home abuse and neglect are common problems affecting nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout the country. There have even been reports of nursing home employees arrested for sexually abusing residents.

No nursing home resident should have to endure abuse and no family should ever have to deal with the trauma of learning a loved one has been abused. When a nursing home employee is charged with sexually abusing a resident, the resident and their family should be aware of their legal rights.

Reporting the abuse to law enforcement may lead to criminal charges, but these victims and families often have grounds for legal action in civil courts. In some cases, nursing homes can be sued for abuse by their employees.
