— A hospital worker has been charged with sexually assaulting a patient after police said he lied to her about needing a CT scan and touched her.

The victim told the Troy Police Department that at 2:30 p. m. on Oct. 3 her doctor told her to visit the Urgent Care located within the Mercy-Lincoln Hospital for a chest x-ray.

At around 7:30 p. m. , she was contacted by a man, who she believed to be the x-ray technician from the hospital, to return for another x-ray due to “something of concern. ”

The technician, identified as Ryan Williams, took her into the CT scan room, gave her a gown and told her to change and lay on the table.

Williams showed her what she believed to be her CT scan and said the doctor was concerned about her having lymphoma.

Williams then escorted her from the hospital.

On Oct. 5, the victim contacted her doctor to ask about the CT scan.

Her doctor told her there was no history of her having a CT scan.

The victim was also told Williams had accessed her personal medical records from the hospital’s system.

Police said due to the level of sophistication of the crime, they believe there may be other victims and are working with the hospital to identify any other possible victims.

Williams had been working for Mercy for 10 years, according to Lincoln County Prosecutor Mike Wood.

When asked why he thinks more victims haven't come forward Wood said it's because of the way the procedure was handled, it wouldn't necessarily raise any red flags that what was being performed was not appropriate.

Williams is no longer employed with Mercy, the hospital said in a statement.
