(Scroll down for video) A nurse was arrested after he gave a 23-year-old woman illegal drugs and then forced her to perform oral sex on him.

David Paul Lazarus, 42, was arrested by police in Broward County, Florida, on two counts of sexual assault.

He is accused of supplying a patient with drugs then forcing her to perform oral sex on him at the Broward Health Medical Center, where he works as a nurse.
Lazarus was not assigned as the woman’s nurse, but he befriended the woman during her hospital stay.

The woman had recently spent time at a drug rehab center to kick her drug habit.
The 26-year-old woman was hospitalized for a kidney stone surgery when he provided her with controlled substances like morphine and oxycontin.

The victim told police that on two occasions Lazarus provided her with drugs then he locked the door of her hospital room, closed the curtain and raped her.

The woman claims that Lazarus exposed his genitals and pulled her head towards him. She said that when she protested he continued to force her saying: “It will be quick.”

Broward County Judge John Hurley said: “The court finds that as a nurse, he represents a danger to the women, who are under his care.”

Lazarus, who has worked in the hospital for five years, denies any sexual contact with the woman, although, he does admit speaking to the woman on the phone. Those phone calls were recorded by police.
