The 34-year-old patient had been in an out of several hospitals because of her epilepsy.
But Centennial Hills stood out from the rest. Nursing assistant Steven Farmer always greeted her with a warm blanket.
The woman wrote down both Farmer’s name and the name of a female emergency nurse, so that she could write them a positive review. She tucked the names into her purse before Farmer was to transport her to her room.
She’d never write the review, but she would file a lawsuit.
The woman is one of six people whom Farmer is accused of sexually assaulting while he was employed at Centennial Hills and Rawson-Neal Psychiatric hospitals.
Five years later, on Monday, the woman’s suit will be the first of at least two civil cases related to Farmer’s alleged misconduct to go to trial in Clark County District Court.
why was a perssn with epilepsy being treated at a psychiatric hospital anyway?
