Virginia nurse charged with sexual battery for inappropriately touching patient

Prince William County Police on Monday arrested a nurse accused of inappropriately touching a patient at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center in Woodbridge, according to The Washington Post.

The police leveled multiple charges against Frederick Yeboah, including sexual battery. The incident allegedly occurred between Aug. 21 and Aug. 24. Police believe the matter was an isolated occurrence and that there are no other victims.

"Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center is committed to the safety and care of our patients," said the hospital in a statement emailed to Becker's. "We are cooperating fully with authorities. The individual has been placed on administrative leave."

Mr. Yeboah was arrested without incident and is slated to appear before court in October.
