A male nurse accused of raping a patient suffering from depression was expected to appear in the Potchefstroom Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The nurse was released on bail of R1000 in January.

It was believed the 24-year-old accused 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.

The SABC reported that the nurse had been found guilty of the crime in a disciplinary process and was subsequently fired.
