Johannesburg - A male nurse accused of raping a patient suffering from depression appeared in the Potchefstroom Magistrate's Court on Thursday, North West police said.

The matter was postponed until February 29, said Brigadier Thulani Ngubane.

The 24-year-old nurse apparently called the patient from the television room to the linen room at a Potchefstroom Hospital on January 19.

The patient followed him because she thought he was going to give her medicine.
