Judge criticises management at Cork University Hospital after girl (17) sexually assaulted in mixed ward

A judge has strongly criticised management at a Cork hospital for putting a 17 year old girl with serious injuries in a mixed ward where she was sexually assaulted by a 63 year old man with a history of psychiatric problems.

Judge Sean O Donnabhain said serious questions had to be asked of Cork University Hospital management over the way they operated their ward system after hearing how Andrew O'Donovan sexually assaulted the girl.
