Luke Nozicka reports:

A hospital in northeast Kansas divulged intimate private details of a woman’s sexual assault evaluation and treatment to her rapist, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court.

And months later, after a “barrage” of harassment, the woman was raped again by the same man, according to the suit.

The woman filed the lawsuit against Atchison Hospital and the X‐ray technician accused of disclosing the patient’s information to her attacker.

The technician was fired by the hospital but was rehired at Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital in Leavenworth County not long after, according to the petition.
