A former University of Kansas (KU) assistant professor used more than 200 patients with intellectual disabilities in sex studies at a state-run Iowa facility, a lawsuit filed on behalf of several former employees at the facility alleges.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, accuses Jerry Rea of using patients at Glenwood Resource Center as “the subjects or ‘guinea pigs’ in research experiments,” the Kansas City Star reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Rea, who was terminated from Glenwood in December, allegedly collaborated with facility administrators to dismantle supervisory mechanisms designed by the Justice Department to protect patients’ civil rights, the lawsuit claims.
The Kansas City Star also provided the following information:
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of several former Glenwood employees, including a nurse practitioner, the former director of quality management, a physician who had worked there and a former employee who was also the guardian for two of the center’s patients.
When workers at the center attempted to report the wrong doing, the suit says, they were silenced, punished or terminated.
