OKC Mother: Doctor Refuses To Treat Daughter Who Was Rape Victim

Posted: Updated:

By Adrianna Iwasinski, News On 6

OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City mom is outraged about the way she says a local doctor treated her daughter. She says her daughter was raped over the weekend. And when they came in to seek treatment and get a rape exam, the doctor refused to help them.

It's hard to imagine being turned away for a rape exam. But it turns out the nurses who specialize in those exams rotate every month to different hospitals around Oklahoma City. They are called Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners and they are specially trained to conduct those exams

However, that's not what this mother is angry about.

The mother's angry that she brought her 24-year-old daughter to the Canadian County hospital emergency room on Sunday, and she claims that the doctor who came in and saw them refused to do any sort of exam or provide them with any emergency contraceptives.

Not only that, she says the doctor was less than sympathetic when dealing with her daughter, even though she was told she was a victim of a rape.

The mother does say she and her daughter were treated much better when they went to Baptist Integris Medical Center in Oklahoma City and that they did get a rape exam done.

We know the mother was encouraged to file a complaint against the doctor.
