Johannesburg - A Durban hospital worker appeared in the Verulam Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl, according to the SABC.

The man, who works at the Mahatma Gandhi Hospital in Phoenix, allegedly lured the 15-year-old girl to the records room where he assaulted her on Sunday morning.

The teenager had apparently accompanied a friend to the hospital.

The case was postponed until April 15, when the man was expected to bring a bail application.

Meanwhile, KwaZulu-Natal health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo had instructed the hospital to dismiss the 40-year-old man, the broadcaster reported.

The department on Sunday welcomed the man's arrest.

"Our hospitals are places of care and people come to us because they are in need of care," the department said in a statement.

"We need people with integrity, people who always do what is right to protect the patient.

"People who assault and abuse children do not belong to this service and if there are still others like him, we must do all our best to rid the service of them."
