Portland ER Nurse, Jeff McAllister.

The Portland Oregon Police Department arrested former nurse Jeffrey N. McAllister on two counts of first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sex abuse, four counts of first-degree sodomy, second-degree sex abuse and third-degree sex abuse.  The charges stem from complaints made by three of McAllister’s former patients while he was employed in the emergency room at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.

Presently, McAllister is on administrative leave from his job at Providence St. Vincent Hospital and Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles.  McAllister is a former police officer who worked in Beaverton Police Department, Seaside and Independence Police Departments and as a Legacy Health System security officer.

Law enforcement officials also contacted the state Board of Nursing, but no one had, as of yet, lodged any complaints against McAllister. 

According to the law enforcement press release, police are concerned that McAllister may have sexually abused more patients while working as a nurse.  The investigation is ongoing.

If these allegations are true–which, with more victims coming forward, it seems likely–then these acts are terrible violations of trust and of professional boundaries.  The victims and their families are right to cooperate with law enforcement and seek justice.
