Psych nurse suspected of affair with patient


Investigators are trying to determine if a female nurse at Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare has been having an affair with a male patient.

One patient told investigators he had another patient's phone and he'd seen nude pictures on it; racy pictures of a nurse.

Records show the nurse and that other patient may have been having a sexual relationship.

The behavior is not allowed since the nurse is an employee at the center.

The facility is a state psych clinic on the border of Summit and Cuyahoga counties.

19 Action News Investigative Reporter Ed Gallek discovered a police report showing an investigation for sexual battery. The case began in September.

We've learned investigators have traced phone records and even found long phone calls between the nurse's main number and the patient's cell phone.

The Ohio Highway Patrol is leading the investigation.

Charges have yet to be filed in the matter.
