BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — A former nurse accused of sexually abusing patients was indicted on more charges Monday in connection with 2 newly identified victims.

Alex Woolner, 37, was arrested in April and charged with sexually abusing patients and accessing their cell phones.

He was indicted Monday on one count of third-degree sex abuse, one count of computer crimes and 2 counts of invasion of personal privacy.

Woolner worked for Kaiser Permanente when the alleged crimes occurred.

Two women filed a lawsuit against Kaiser for not properly investigating allegations of sex abuse and for failing to train its employees on how to handle such claims.

Beaverton police say Woolner, who lives in North Plains, victimized “female patients that came to Kaiser Permanente for medical treatment.”

He reportedly had direct contact with patients from January 1 – February 29.

Woolner is currently lodged in Washington County Jail.

Police are asking any other victims to please come forward.
