More lawsuits filed against Kansas VA worker

More lawsuits have been filed against a former physician assistant accused of sexual battery and other crimes at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Leavenworth.

At least three lawsuits were filed earlier this year in U.S. District Court in Kansas accusing Mark Wisner of conducting unnecessary and improper genital examinations at the Leavenworth VA Medical Center.

Wisner surrendered his medical license last year after at least seven patients accused him of abuse. He agreed in a consent order last year that he violated the law by having inappropriate sexual contact with patients and overprescribing medication.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports ( court records show Wisner now faces a dozen lawsuits, with the latest filed last week. The new lawsuits also accuse Wisner of improper genital examinations.
