A US nurse has lost her job and surrendered her license after she was caught taking pictures of her male patient’s genitals with a phone, reports NY Daily.
Kristen Johnson, 27, of Fulton, “did not contest the charge of moral unfitness in the practice,” the state Board of Regents announced.
Johnson pleaded guilty in November to disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos, a misdemeanor.
She took photos of patients in 2014 while working at Upstate University Hospital.
The Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office began investigating after Johnson’s co-workers complained that she captured images of two patients and sent them via text message, authorities said when she was arrested in May of 2015.
Johnson initially faced a felony charge, but it was later reduced.
As part of the plea deal, she was forced to give up her license and is required to spend three years on probation.
