A male nurse jailed for sexually assaulting a patient and recording videos of colleagues undressing at a Melbourne hospital has been banned from nursing for at least 10 years.
Sean Farrow was jailed in 2019 after admitting to installing hidden cameras in a toilet cubicle and female change room at the Monash House Private Hospital.
The registered nurse also admitted to sexually assaulting a female patient who was recovering in the post-operative ward where he worked.
Farrow was sentenced to six months in prison and placed on an 18-month community corrections order.
Last month, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia took the matter to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal which found Farrow committed five instances of professional misconduct.
His nursing registration was cancelled and he was banned from registering or from working in the health industry for 10 years.
Mr Farrow did not take part in the VCAT proceedings, instead he informed the board he did not intend to return to work in the "industry" and did not wish to be contacted about the matter again.
Instead, he emailed the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency telling them it would be "prudent" not to take the matter to VCAT because "it is a complete WASTE of time, money, resources and personnel".
