2010-02-15 00:00

A MALE nurse employed by the Msunduzi Health Department was arrested last week and is due to appear in court today after being charged with the rape of a pregnant 16-year-old patient.

According to police, the patient went to Mason’s Clinic in Copesville last Thursday for an asthma check-up. The nurse proceeded to check the victim’s chest and during the examination, the patient told the nurse she was pregnant.

The nurse then requested that the patient follow him into an office so that he could examine her to make sure that she was indeed pregnant.

When they were both inside the office, the nurse locked the door, put on gloves and asked the patient to lie down so the examination could proceed.

Once the patient had done this, the nurse raped her and when he was done, he unlocked the door and left the premises.

The manager spotted the patient crying and when she asked her what the problem was, she said she had been raped. The manager phoned the nurse, who denied the allegation and said he was coming back to the clinic.

When he arrived, he again denied the incident, but the police were called and he was arrested.
