ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A male nurse at a Florida medical center has been arrested and charged with sexual battery on two patients, authorities said.

Police said Shean Gavlin, 49, a nurse at the Osceola Regional Medical Center, allegedly forced a woman to perform sexual acts in order to receive pain medication and touched another woman inappropriately after giving her an injection, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Gavlin was arrested Wednesday and is being held on $20,000 bond, the newspaper said.

It's the second time an arrest has put the hospital in the public eye.

Last month 17-year-old Matthew Scheidt was arrested on charges of posing as a physician's assistant at the hospital and allegedly performing CPR on a patient in the emergency room.

The state Agency for Health Care Administration is investigating the hospital, the Sentinel reported.
