Hospital Faces Medical Privacy Lawsuit In Regards to Alleged Rape

Posted: Updated:

A woman in Helena is suing St. Peter's Hospital and former pharmacist Jim Stevick saying that he violated her medical privacy when she visited the hospital after an alleged rape. The woman reported to authorities last year that she was raped by Stevick's son, Andrew Stevick. She went to St. Peter's Hospital to seek treatment the same day.

The lawsuit accuses the former St. Peter's pharmacist to have improperly accessed her medical records. According to court documents filed last week, the woman made her concerns to hospital staff clear of the possibility of Jim Stevick imposing on her medical confidentiality.

A spokesperson from St. Peter's released a statement saying:

"While st. Peter's does not comment on matters related to pending litigation, we do take patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously. As part of our long-standing commitment to patient privacy and confidentiality, we have a zero tolerance policy for any staff member who violates a patient's privacy. Any staff member who violates our patient privacy policy is immediately terminated."

Jim Stevick is currently not employed by St. Peter's Hospital.
