Pinoy nurse accused of sexually abusing patient in US
NEW YORK CITY – A 39-year-old Filipino registered nurse was arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a male quadriplegic Afghanistan war veteran on two separate occasions.
Prosecutors said Dioscoro Flores abused the 24-year-old veteran between July and August in the alleged victim’s bedroom at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
The victim, whose name was not released, is unable to speak. But he reportedly alerted his father by using eye movements and a spell board after the second incident.
After an internal investigation, Flores was arrested last week and charged with felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
His bail was set at $50,000.
