B.C. war vet with PTSD sues his psychiatric nurse after sex, plans to marry: Writ
A war veteran with PTSD who’s suing his psychiatric nurse and her former employer for sexual acts, inappropriate professional conduct and manipulation, said she displayed “flirtatious mannerisms” by telling him he smelled good during a psychiatric assessment in September 2021, soon after he was admitted, according to a writ filed in court.
Craig Dolan, a “psychiatrically disabled Afghanistan veteran,” alleges in the notice of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court that Victoria Wilson, his assigned nurse during his 90-day stay at the Sunshine Coast Health Centre in Powell River, then asked him to sneak out to come to her Christmas party and sent him text and other messages on social media before they kissed about a month after he was admitted.
Dolan was being treated as an in-patient for “combat-induced post traumatic stress disorder and resulting addiction of heroin and cocaine” for the second time at the centre, having relapsed after completing the 90-day program in 2019, he said in the writ.
By October 2021, he and Wilson were regularly having sex in his room and her office at the centre, while he was under her direct care for several treatments a day, and once in a hotel room when Dolan snuck out of the facility, according to the writ.
