Former Employee at Porter Adventist Hospital Sentenced for Patient Contact

On Thursday, December 20th, Ralph Vincent Martin was sentenced to 60 days in jail for unlawful sexual contact with a patient at Porter Adventist Hospital in Denver.

Martin was working as a monitor technician at the hospital when the incident occurred. In early November, Martin entered the victim’s room while she was recovering from surgery and inappropriately touched her.

Martin has since been fired and stated that he is getting help for his behavior.

The victim did not appear at the Denver District Court to make a statement due to wanting to avoid the trauma.
