SAN DIEGO (AP) — California has suspended the licenses of two male nurses in San Diego after videos allegedly showed them fondling each other at the bedside of a 98-year-old stroke patient.
The registered nurses were barred from private nursing last month but were permitted to keep working in hospitals.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/ZDjIS5) says an administrative law judge ordered a full suspension of one man's license on Wednesday and the other agreed to a full suspension before the hearing got underway.
Authorities say they were given security camera videos by the woman's family that appear to show her paid caregivers fondling each other by her bedside, touching her hand and kissing her face.
The woman's daughter has sued the men for elder abuse.
