GREELEY, Colo. - Denver7 has learned that a veteran Colorado nurse named Thomas Mark Moore, 43, has been accused of sexually touching or making advances on at least 11 women at hospital emergency rooms in this state and Nebraska.
A major revelation occurred Monday when court records obtained by Denver7 showed that Greeley police have identified seven women, five of whom accuse Moore of groping them. A fifth woman said the nurse tried to touch her breasts but she shoved his hands away. The seventh woman said Moore didn't touch her sexually but he was "very flirtatious" and sent her a Facebook friend request later. Other alleged victims say the nurse tried to friend them on Facebook.
Greeley police arrested Moore on Friday night on investigation of six counts of felony unlawful sexual contact. He remained in Weld County Jail Monday with bond is set at $100,000.
Fort Collins police initially arrested Moore on Dec. 21, and they accuse him of sexually touching two female patients at Poudre Valley Hospital. The Fort Collins investigation led investigators to identify victims in Greeley and Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
Fort Collins investigators, believing there were other victims, publicized the case last month. News reports about Moore's arrest caused several of the victims from the UCHealth Greeley Emergency and Surgery Center to contact Fort Collins police, who notified the Greeley Police Department.
Breakdown by community:
Moore was fired from UCHealth Greeley Emergency and Surgery Center in June 2015, according to UCHealth, an umbrella organization for the Greeley emergency center, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies.
A UCHealth spokeswoman said the organization reported Moore to the Colorado Board of Nursing in June. But the board did not suspend Moore' license until Jan. 6, 2016. The board cited his arrest in the first Fort Collins case as the cause of his suspension.
