I'm so surprised. In England they have mixed sex hospital rooms.
I was shocked to hear about an 82 year old lady being sexually assaulted by a sex offender who was in the next bed to her, with just a curtain between them. The hospital say they are not entitled to know if someone is a sex offender due to patient confidentiality.
Just imagine...in hospital, unwell, you have no idea if the man next to you is going to shove his winkle in your face in the middle of the night when you are sleeping and you have no idea if he is a convicted sex offender.
In U.S. hospitals, do doctors and nurses know in advance if a patient is a sex offender? If so, how is the safety of other patients handled?
