Nurse suspended after inappropriate touching of patient

A male nurse who squeezed a student's breast and touched her vagina while demonstrating how to conduct a head to toe patient assessment and then said she could "sit on his face" has had his registration suspended for two months.

The man, who also fondled an unconscious female patient's breasts while she was in the intensive care unit at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, was recently reprimanded by a tribunal for engaging in professional misconduct.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia took Alfredo Crocetti to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over the two incidents, which happened in 2012 and 2014.

Mr Crocetti came to the attention of the professional authority after he inappropriately put his hand inside a student's bra, removed the cup, touched and squeezed her bare breast while teaching an acute care class at Victoria University in 2014.

During the "demonstration" of a head to toe assessment on a patient, the tribunal heard that Mr Crocetti put his hand down the woman's outer leg garment before touching her inner thighs and vagina over her underpants.
