Canadian doctor sentenced for patient abuse

Posted on

A Canadian doctor who sexually assaulted 21 sedated patients while they helplessly watched has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Anaesthesiologist George Doodnaught, 65, abused the women, aged 25 to 75, while they were in his care.

The victims testified that they had been conscious when Doodnaught kissed, fondled and assaulted them, but they were unable to move.

All but one of the attacks occurred at North York General Hospital in Toronto.

The assaults – mainly conducted between 2006-10 – were concealed from other medical staff only by a surgical drape.
