A Staten Island sonogram operator is accused of raping a patient while she was under medication. The patient, 30, came to the Richmond University Medical Center on December 11 complaining of abdominal pains and was put on Dilaudid. She was alone with the ultrasound technician, Kenrussell Salvador, 33, when he allegedly raped her. When questioned, Salvador, perhaps fearing a DNA investigation, claimed he had masturbated in the room earlier in the day. He was arrested and arraigned on Thursday.
A spokeman for the hospital says Salvador no longer works there.
