Former Texas hospital employee arrested for secretly taping nude patients

Listen

A former Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center employee has been charged with two counts of invasive video recording after investigators found he secretly videotaped nude patients at the Waco, Texas-based hospital, according to a KWTX report.

Investigators determined 41-year-old Johnny Basye secretly videotaped at least two nude female hospital patients. The investigation into Mr. Basye began on Dec. 21 when a woman turned over a computer hard drive that contained nude images of at least two women who were patients at Hillcrest.

Waco police sergeant W. Patrick Swanton told KWTX it was obvious the two women were patients because they were wearing "hospital clothing."

"We can tell you that within hours of being alerted to this issue, we involved the appropriate authorities," the hospital said in a statement issued to KWTX.

Mr. Basye worked at Hillcrest for less than a year and has since been terminated, according to the hospital's statement.
