Woman Stalked By Nurse after Surgery

When Darcy started getting text messages from the nurse anesthesiologist soon after getting home from having reconstructive shoulder surgery, she thought it was strange and felt uncomfortable. When he sent her a photo of himself, she knew he had crossed a line.

“I’m angry," Darcy says. "I still feel violated. I still feel victimized. I still have nightmares. Yeah, I’m still scared.”

OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton explains that patients should rarely be left alone with one doctor.

“If you as a patient ever feel uncomfortable, you should always speak up,” she says. “Never be afraid that that is going to be held against you, and ask for someone to be present. Trust your instinct.”

ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says as soon as you notice bizarre behavior, you should report it.

“We have to get people like this out of the health care system.”
