An upstate New York nurse surrendered her license after she was convicted of taking a photo of an unconscious patient’s penis with her iPhone, authorities said.
Kristen Johnson, 27, of Fulton, “did not contest the charge of moral unfitness in the practice,”the state Board of Regents announced.
Johnson pleaded guilty in November to disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos, a misdemeanor.
