Dr. Despicable

Aja Newman thought she was in good hands at Mount Sinai Emergency Department with a charming “superstar” teaching physician—until he masturbated on her while she was sedated.
People didn’t want to believe her; allies flocked to Newman's defense. But she’d collected evidence, and then other women came forward. David Newman (no relation) ended up in prison.
The world-class teaching hospital also has a reputation for a cut-throat, toxic work culture marked by staff suicides. Some say that more supervision and less-overwhelmed staff might offer safeguards against bad actors. But the hospital is sticking by the “bad apple” argument.
