Police responded to Kaiser Permanente Gwinnett Comprehensive Medical Center on the morning of May 22 after a female patient reported being sexually assaulted by a medical staff member. Police identified that man as Cu. A warrant for his arrest was obtained on July 13, and Cu was arrested Aug. 14.
Cu was terminated from Kaiser Permanente “more than two months ago,” spokeswoman Cheryl Brown said.
“The safety of our patients is our highest priority. We have no tolerance for behavior that puts our patients at risk. We take allegations of misconduct very seriously, and we take action to protect our patients,” Kaiser Permanente said in a statement. “Immediately after this allegation was made, law enforcement was involved and we conducted a thorough internal investigation. Mr. Cu, who was a care technician, is no longer with our organization.”
Few details were made available regarding the alleged assault. Cu had “sexual contact with the intimate parts of the victim while she was a patient under his care at the facility,” a warrant says.
Cu was released from the Gwinnett County Detention Center on $11,200 bond nine hours after he was arrested.
