The hospital fired Gonzalez after the April 30 incident, The Miami Herald reported Thursday.

Gonzalez's hospital duties included wheeling patients through the building.

''Even an isolated incident is unacceptable. We worked very closely with the Miami Beach police on this matter, and will continue to assist the authorities until a proper resolution is achieved,'' said hospital spokeswoman Pamela Gadinsky.

The 31-year-old surgery patient said he was waking up from anesthesia when he shoved Gonzalez away after he "began to perform oral sex'' on him.
