A nurse has lost her job and her licence revoked after she was caught taking pictures of her male patient's genitals with a smart phone. The woman, identified as Kristen Johnson, was arrested last May after a nine-month investigation into the claims. She had claimed she took a picture of a patient's blood clot being cleaned as they lay unconscious. The 27-year-old has now had her licence revoked after choosing not to contest a charge of practising with moral unfitness. The former nurse from New York, will also be put on probation for three years but has avoided jail.
Johnson, who worked at Upstate University Hospital, pleaded guilty in November last year to misdemeanor disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos. Criminal charges were dropped after she pleaded guilty and agreed to hand over her licence to practise.
