SARASOTA -- A Bradenton nurse has been charged with committing a lewd act in front of a patient, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
The state also is investigating Sean Golden for three other similar incidents, according to a sheriff's office news release.
"The 54-year old victim is being cared for at Complex Care Hospital at Ridgelake in Sarasota while she recovers from injuries sustained in a fall. She reported that on Saturday night, Sean Golden entered her room, told her details about his personal life and said he wanted to be her private nurse," the release states. "He then touched his genitals and said 'see what you're doing to me.' Later that night, the victim woke up to find Golden masturbating at her bedside."
During the investigation, sheriff's detectives learned the Florida Department of Health is currently investigating Golden for three other similar incidents at another facility.
