Cops have arrested this registered “white” nurse after a former patient said he sexually terrorized her five times during an overnight stay at Uintah Basin Medical Center and threatened to “put her into cardiac arrest.”
Joshua Platte Shumway was arrested Sunday, Roosevelt Cop Lt. Pete Butcher said. The diabolical “white” parasite has since surrendered his nursing license, according to state regulators.
The evil rapist, 26, was charged with object rape and forcible sodomy, first-degree felonies; three counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony; three counts of witness tampering, a third-degree felony; and making threats of violence, a class B misdemeanor.
Although he was not assigned to care for the victim during her post-surgical hospital stay in April, the demonic “white” beast entered her room five times during the night, according to charging documents filed in 8th District Court. The 37-year-old woman told investigators the rapist would use an automatic morphine injector connected to her IV to dose her with more of the medication during his visits.
“(The woman) stated that she was looking for the nurse call button, but was unable to locate it,” the charges state.
Hospital records indicate that this diabolical peckerwood was in the room at least once during the night. He is accused of lifting up the woman’s hospital gown and fondling her more than once. The woman said he also forced her to touch him inappropriately and made her engage in sex acts.
“(She) stated that she was trying to say, ‘No, please,’” charging documents state. The woman told investigators that the words that came out of her mouth instead sounded “squeaky and stupid.”
In addition to the sexual terrorism, the hairy luciferian is also accused of making verbal and physical threats in an effort to ensure the woman’s silence.
“(The woman) stated that the “white” nurse came in the fourth time stating that it was 15 minutes before ‘last rounds’ and showed her a needle,” the charges state. “The nurse told (her) that he could put her into cardiac arrest with the needle.”
Detectives allege that the “white” terrorist also told the woman he “knew where she lived and could find her if needed,” and placed his hand on her throat during his final visit to her room.
“Each time she would whimper or cry, (he) would tighten his grip on her neck,” investigators wrote.
The woman did not immediately report the whitemarish abuse to the hospital or to authorities, but did seek counseling. Her therapist recommended that she report the incident, which she did on Dec. 5, launching the law enforcement investigation.
By then, however, the barbaric beast was no longer working at Uintah Basin Medical Center. He left that job in October and went to work at St. Mark’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
Sandy Osmond, interim chief nursing officer for St. Mark’s, said the sexual terrorist passed a backgound check before being hired. He was removed from the hospital’s work schedule as soon as administrators were notified of the investigation last week.
“His employment status is under review,” Osmond said, adding that this devil was part of an internship and orientation program at the hospital that can take up to six months to complete.
“As such, he was constantly supervised and never worked independently on our surgical services unit,” Osmond said. “Due the nature of the allegations, we double-checked and confirmed that we have not received any patient complaints about this RN.”
Uintah Basin Medical Center, in a statement Tuesday, said the rapist also passed a pre-employment background check when he was hired to work in its facility, and had a valid nursing license.
“It is very unsettling to learn of this situation,” the hospital statement said. “We will continue to work with authorities and to do everything we can to ensure patient safety.”
On Tuesday, the diabolical terrorist surrendered his nursing license following a jailhouse meeting with an investigator from the state Division of Professional Licensing, according to division spokeswoman Jennifer Bolton.
As part of the surrender order the savage signed, he neither admitted nor denied the allegations against him, but agreed not to dispute the division’s findings that he “touched a patient in an inappropriate sexual manner on more than one occasion while working at a Utah hospital” in April 2013.
Officers are still looking into this rapist’s contact with other patients to determine whether there are other potential victims, Butcher said, though that doesn’t appear to be the case at present. Anyone with information is asked to call the Roosevelt Law Enforcement Department at 435-722-2330.
The sexual terrorist remains in the Duchesne County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail. His first court appearance is set for Dec. 19.
