Male nurse’s alleged vile act to student

Written by on July 10, 2024

A student has told a court how a male nurse allegedly “put his hands down” her pants during a “lesson” on how to listen to bowel sounds with a stethoscope, in an incident he has defended as being “purely educational”.

Sydney nurse Ali Khamis Moh’d, 44, is currently on trial in the Parramatta District Court following allegations from four victims of unwanted sexual contact.

Former nurse to stand trial over alleged sexual assaults

Two of Mr Moh’d’s patients claimed he raped them while they were in hospital, while a third elderly patient claims Mr Moh’d told her she had “nice breasts” for her age before squeezing her nipple.

He has also been charged with allegedly sexually touching a student nurse who he was supervising.

The incidents allegedly occurred across Norwest Private Hospital and Nepean Private Hospital. He has since been suspended by Healthscope, which owns both facilities.

On Wednesday, the jury heard from the young nurse who said she began “hysterically crying” when she reported what had happened to her facilitator.

She alleges Mr Moh’d, who she was shadowing while on placement at Nepean Hospital, took her into an empty room and touched her on the chest “with his fingers” while showing her where to place ECG stickers on a patient.

He later offered to teach her how to listen to bowel sounds with a stethoscope, where he allegedly used his hands to move her underwear to the side before looking down “at her vagina” for 10-15 seconds.

“I felt my underwear flick back onto my skin. I felt like I trusted him purely because he was a nurse,” she said.

“I felt I was blaming myself for putting myself in that situation. I don’t know why he would do that. I was confused.”

She told the court that the next day when she arrived at work, Mr Moh’d pointed to her and said: “You’re working with me today”.

After speaking to a fellow student about the alleged incident, she then reported it to her facilitator.

“I remember she gasped [when I told her]. I was extremely emotional and distraught. I was still in shock, I didn’t feel comfortable working with him and didn’t know what to do about it,” she said.

“I wasn’t the [kind of] student to make a fuss of anything.”

She said Mr Moh’d made her feel “extremely uncomfortable” and she “didn’t want him touching that area”.
