Nurse accused of secretly recording eight patients

A nurse in Pennsylvania took secret photographs and videos of eight naked patients - including a 17-year-old girl - during appointments at a dermatology office, authorities said.

The Bucks County District Attorney's Office says James Close, of Boone Avenue in Roslyn, was initially charged on February 13 with surreptitiously video taping the 17-year-old patient while she was receiving a light radiation treatment at Penn Medicine Dermatology on the 1000 block of Floral Vale Boulevard in Lower Makefield. But that was before she saw the cell phone. James Close, a 45-year-old licensed practical nurse, was the technician assigned to help the teen during her treatments.

The naked teenage patient was in a light booth receiving the treatment when she noticed an iPhone on the floor of the booth, according to court records. According to WPVI News, police searched the phone (which was identified as belonging to Close) and found 18 videos of patients in the light booth.

"The iPhone's screen indicated that it was recording live video and that it had been doing so for 25 seconds", Det. The iPhone was recording video at the time, and she turned it over to staff at the facility, 6ABC writes.

Nude videos and photos of seven other patients who had all come under Close's care were subsequently found on his iPhone.




He was charged with four criminal counts back then.

Numerous videos depict victims' private parts and/or bare breasts as they underwent the treatment either nude or in various stages of undress, the affidavit indicates.

The videos found on Close's phone dated from January 18 through his arrest on February 13, ranging from 13 seconds to more than 3 minutes long.

Penn Medicine would not disclose how long Close was an employee or whether he had any previous discipline issues.

Close, who was being held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 bails, is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning for a preliminary arraignment.
