Former UVa Medical Center employee Rudolph Johnson, after pleading guilty last March to sexually assaulting two psychiatric patients in their hospital beds, has been sentenced to ten years in prison. After the assaults in the spring of last year, the hospital fired nine employees that had been convicted of felonies in the past, touching off protests against the firings before they ultimately settled with the fired workers. The assaults also prompted investigations into the psych. ward by Medicare, which were ultimately resolved. Adrienne Schwisow has the story in today’s Progress.
