(Newser) – A man who was in the ICU on medication and awaiting a heart transplant says a nurse came into his room and had sex with him against his wishes, reports CBS Chicago. A lawsuit filed by the man and his wife says the incident, "including intercourse," took place in 2012 at the Advocate Christ Medical Center in the Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn. The suit accuses the facility of negligence because the nurse had a history of such things. The state reprimanded her earlier this year for failing to report having been fired "for crossing professional boundaries with a patient," reports NBC Chicago. It's not clear where she works now, but her license is still active in the state. The lawsuit seeks $150,000 in damages.
