My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Texas
I've thought about this a lot and I feel I should do something but not sure how I should proceed. I was a Nurse & Surgical Assistant and from 1993 until 2000 I ran an OB/GYN practice. The physician that I managed the practice for, who was married at the time, aggressively "pursued me"...he would make sure there were charts to review after hours etc, he overwhelmed me with cards, letters, money, and ultimately he initiated & fueled an addiction to narcotics. Initially, he did this by prescribing them in high doses for my "illnesses" & post-surgical meds that in truth were completely inappropriate for the required pain control or treatment sought. (such as Demerol Injections for migraines, etc) I trusted him because first he was my employer and a highly respected OB/GYN Surgeon but he was also MY doctor...after the relationship progressed to a personal/intimate level he actually admitted that he knew I was becoming dependent on the drugs and that the drugs made me more "receptive" to him & the circumstances. He also told me at one point he was concerned about me taking his actions of "love" out of context and thinking it was in some way sexual harassment. One time when I sought treatment, he camped out in the city where I had been admitted to a facility for 3 days. He tried every way possible to gain access to me including using being a physician. They had to lock down the facility at one point. That's just one example of the insanity that became my life. I know he used his position as my employer and physician to "possess" me. I use the word "possess" because that's the word he used in reference to how strong his feelings were for me. It's a long,convoluted,sad story....I just need some help on how to reconcile this..I probably would have done something years ago, but my children were still young, I was still battling the addiction/depression and I didn't want my family to be hurt by this...I know that it's a combination of issues...harassment, malpractice, etc.??? I would appreciate any advice or assistance.
