A 47-year-old nurse has been charged with sexually assaulting three patients while working at a Kansas City, Kan., hospital.
Dennis Clark, of Gardner, is charged in Wyandotte County District Court with three counts of aggravated sexual battery. The alleged assaults occurred between Dec. 9 last year and May 23 this year while Clark was a staff nurse in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit at Providence Medical Center.
In a written statement, the hospital said Clark is no longer employed there.
“We hold the safety of our patients as our highest priority and are cooperating fully with law enforcement,” the hospital said. “Beyond that, we can’t comment due to privacy issues.”
According to state records, Clark has been licensed as a registered nurse in Kansas since 2001.
A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 30.
The Wyandotte County District Attorney’s office said anyone with information about other possible victims should contact Kansas City, Kan., police at 913-573-6020.
