Lansing Larry Nassar was able to brazenly abuse women for decades because Michigan State University failed to properly pursue complaints, destroyed vital documents and allowed the disgraced doctor to exploit loopholes in university policies to avoid scrutiny, Michigan House lawmakers said Thursday.

.

A months-long inquiry by the House into how MSU handled accusations of sexual assault by the former gymnastics doctor produced alarming findings that were forwarded to the attorney generals office for further investigation.

.

While some of those findings remain under wraps because of an ongoing criminal investigation, bipartisan committee leaders disclosed several significant findings in a letter to House Speaker Tom Leonard, highlighting failures by MSU.

.

Nassar seems to have spent decades developing his ability to abuse patients without detection by identifying and exploiting loopholes in the policies that governed his professional conduct and patient relationships, wrote lawmakers, describing their review of MSU documents and question responses.

.

Medical records were never kept for many of Nassars treatments, they found. MSU did not have an adequate informed consent policy in place for much of the time he worked there, which Nassar methodically exploited, lawmakers said, and university policies did not require a chaperone to be in the room during sensitive examinations of minors.

.

In some cases, MSU had destroyed patients medical records by the time they reported Nassar to university police, lawmakers said. While the destruction did not violate state law or university policy, such records may have proven useful to at least one of the survivors seeking justice against Nassar.

.

MSU spokeswoman Emily Guerrant said following the inquirys release that MSU will be working with the House on its legislation and shares the joint concern of lawmakers who want to make sure the horrendous abuse that Larry Nassar executed cannot happen again.

.

An attorney for the university answered dozens of questions from lawmakers, which they also released.

.

Miller Canfield attorney Scott Eldridge told lawmakers that the university already has implemented a new privacy and chaperone policy. The universitys 10-year record retention policy exceeds the seven years required by state law, but the health team is conducting a global policy review, and there is potential that the minimum retention time will (be) addressed.

.

The House findings are the result of an extensive inquiry by the Law and Justice Committee and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education. They requested Nassar-related information from MSU on Jan. 25 and received more than 1,500 pages of documents.
