BERGEN COUNTY -

A Bergen County nurse has been temporarily suspended from practice after he was charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault on a person who was physically helpless and mentally incapacitated, according to a press release from state Attorney General Christopher Porrino.

Radcliffe Rose, 51, of Maywood, also agreed to the temporary suspension of his NJ registration as a pharmacy technician, which is currently expired, the release stated. Under the terms of an Interim Consent Order he signed with the State Board of Nursing and the State Board of Pharmacy, Rose’s licenses will remain temporarily suspended pending the resolution of the criminal charge against him and pending further action by the boards.

Porrino said Rose is accused of engaging in sexual conduct with the alleged victim in Wyckoff. He was arrested on May 11 and has been detained in the Bergen County Jail since his arrest.

“Protecting the public is paramount to our licensing boards,” said Steve Lee, director of Consumer Affairs. “Given the nature of the allegations against Nurse Rose, the Boards took appropriate action in temporarily suspending him from practice until this very serious criminal matter is resolved.”

Lee said patients who believe that they have been treated by a licensed health care professional in an inappropriate manner can file an online complaint with the State Division of Consumer Affairs by visiting its website or by calling 1-800-242-5846 (toll free within New Jersey) or 973-504- 6200.
