She narrated that she felt uneasy with the nurse’s actions but he asked her to relax, to which she duly obliged.

She told the Police that on one occasion she came back to meet Mr. Green in her room after returning from the washroom.

According to her, she felt very weak since she had been suffering from running stomach and could barely walk to her bed.

Mr. Green realized her situation and offered to help her get to her bed. However, she said, upon helping her to the bed, the nurse started fondling her breast and ended up having unprotected sex with her.
