MIAMI - A Mount Sinai Medical Center employee was arrested Wednesday after he confessed to performing a sex act on a male patient waking up from anesthesia after surgery.
Pedro J. Gonzalez, 27, who transports patients within the hospital, was charged with sexual battery, Miami Beach police said.
Gonzalez was immediately fired following the April 30 incident where the patient said Gonzalez wheeled him from a recovery room to his standard room, helped him out of bed and "began to perform oral sex" on him, according to a police report obtained by The Miami Herald.
Although the 31-year-old patient was coming off anesthesia, he told detectives he was aware of the act and could ID the suspect.
