License of nurse charged with sex crimes revoked

Kansas officials have revoked the license of a nurse who was fired and later charged with sexually assaulting three patients.

The Kansas City Star reports that the Kansas State Board of Nursing took the final steps to strip Dennis Clark of his license Friday. The 47-year-old Gardner man was charged last month in Wyandotte County District Court with three counts of aggravated sexual battery.

Prosecutors said in a written statement that the alleged assaults occurred from December through May while Clark worked in a post-anesthesia care unit at Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. Law enforcement officials in Wyandotte County and Johnson County, where Clark worked previously, are continuing to investigate.

Clark’s attorney hasn’t returned phone calls from The Associated Press seeking comment.
