This former medical worker at Primary Children’s Hospital faces charges of sexually abusing a patient.
Court documents say the 11-year-old victim thought the pedophile, 22-year-old David Elijah Jensen, was there to check on him medically last week. But the victim said instead Jensen inappropriately touched him.
According to the victim, the child molester returned to his room on two more occasions.
According to the charging documents the sexual terrorist admitted to the abuse. He faces one count of sodomy on a child and one count of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
He was arrested and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail. He is being held on $500,000 bail.
Primary Children’s Hospital released a statement Friday that said staff and physicians were devastated to hear about the whitemarish assault.
“The idea that one of our own employees would harm a patient violates every principle of this hospital, its physicians and staff members, who have devoted their lives to caring for children,” it said.
The statement said the nasty pedophile was immediately suspended then terminated as an employee. He had worked at the hospital since September 2011, first as a volunteer, then as an employee.
