Kent nursing home employee claims sexual contact with patient “accidental”

Douglas McGregor, age 35, has been charged with second-degree rape after he was discovered exposing his genitals to an elderly Alzheimer’s patient. McGregor, who has no previous criminal history, is being held on 250K bail.

The incident occurred at an assisted living facility for Alzheimer’s patients, Weatherly Inn at Lake Meridian which is located in Kent, Washington.

According to a report in The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, McGregor claims that the patient broke the button on his pants and that the sexual contact was “accidental.”

The patient’s son describes his mother as “devastated” after the incident.

The Weatherly Inn immediately called 911 when an employee discovered McGregor. They also contacted the patient’s family.
