When a British Columbia hospital found out about an X-ray technologist who was being investigated by the RCMP for sexual assaults of patients, the worker was put on duties that included him having no contact with patients.

The technologist, who was 59 years old, had almost 30 years of seniority with the employer. 

But in November 2017, the RCMP advised hospital management that the technologist (whose name was not provided), was being charged with three separate sexual assaults, that allegedly occurred in 1990, 1997 and 2001 on three different patients.
