Two Fort Collins women have come forward stating that a nurse groped them while they were being treated at Poudre Valley Hospital.
The nurse, Thomas Moore, 43, was arrested by Fort Collins police Dec. 21 after the first woman came forward. According to police, Moore has also been accused of assaulting other patients while working at various hospitals across Colorado.
According to the Coloradoan, the first Fort Collins incident was brought to police in August. The woman told police that she was prescribed morphine for abdominal pain in 2013 and felt “out of it”. Moore allegedly kissed her breasts and neck, and as she left the hospital he told her “I’ll find you, sweetie.” She received a Facebook friend request from him days later.
The second woman came forward recently after the first incident was reported in the media and gained public attention.
Moore’s nursing license has been suspended and he now faces two counts of Unlawful Sexual Contact, a class 4 felony.
Moore previously worked at these hospitals:
Northern Colorado Medical Center (Greeley)
McKee Medical Center (Loveland)
Greeley Medical Clinic Urgent Care (Greeley)
Greeley Emergency Center (Greeley)
Medical Center of the Rockies (Loveland)
Poudre Valley Hospital (Fort Collins)
