Student Denied a Rape Kit at Several Hospitals?
According to a DC-area student newspaper,
A Howard student is suing the University for negligence and medical malpractice because she said she was raped and denied proper care at GW Hospital because she allegedly appeared intoxicated, according to documents filed in D.C. Superior Court.
The plaintiff, a 19-year-old sophomore, also filed suit against the District, Howard University Hospital and several local doctors. The complaint states she was given a date-rape drug at an off-campus party near Howard and was then denied a rape kit at several hospitals – including GW.
GW Hospital allegedly denied her treatment because doctors at Howard said she appeared intoxicated, according to court documents.
