A nursing assistant has been charged with placing a camera inside a bathroom at Ben Taub Hospital.

According to court documents, the camera placed by Todd West was found inside a box of latex gloves. The discovery was in a co-ed bathroom on the fifth floor that is primarily used by staff members. The bathroom, which is not locked to the public, is used by the public on occasion.

A recording found on the camera showed a nude female patient who was getting ready for a shower.

"Mr. West apologized for his actions (confirmed he had placed a hidden camera in the staff restroom) and asked to be taken off the schedule," HR records stated.

West is charged with improper photography.
