Leicester Royal Infirmary hospital worker sexually assaulted female patient as she lay in a coma



A hospital worker allegedly filmed himself sexually assaulting a female patient as she lay in a coma.

The 31-year-old victim only learned she had been violated when police came to her home after her release from hospital.
The 39-year-old hospital worker was arrested after he bragged to a friend who then told police.
The man pervert is believed to have filmed the attack at Leicester Royal Infirmary on his mobile phone and may even have uploaded the footage onto the internet.
The victim, who has not been named, said: 'I find the whole thing disgusting. How could something like this have happened?
'I was in a coma for the first week I was in hospital and you could only get to the ward where I was by going through a nurses' station.'
Although police have told her they believe she was assaulted she has no memory of the attack.
'It sounds crazy, but it is very difficult to deal with something when you have no memory of it,' she added.
'People have said perhaps it is a good thing I don't know what happened, but it is hard to come to terms with something you don't know anything about.
'I had only been home for three or four days after suffering a nervous breakdown when the police told me about the investigation.
'Apparently this man had boasted to a friend, who then reported it to the police. I am so angry that something like might have been allowed to happen.'
A Leicestershire police spokesman said: 'A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.
'He has been released on policing bail pending further inquiries.'
In a short statement, the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: 'We are helping police with their inquiries and can therefore say very little for now.

'But we can confirm that a member of staff has been dismissed.'
