    OUTRAGE! Nurse Sexually Assaults Quadriplegic Vet

    by: Brandon Walker




    A quadriplegic United States Army Veteran who is unable to speak is being treated for more pain and trauma after an ordeal at his rehabilitation center. A Chicago nurse who was over his care has been arrested and accused of sexual abuse of the veteran.

    Dioscoro Flores, 39, a nurse at a highly regarded rehabilitation center in Chicago, Illinois, has been arrested and charged with alleged sexual assault of the 24-year-old combat veteran on two occasions, July 4 and Aug. 6, in the soldiers own room at the center.

    The soldier, only able to communicate through eye movement and a “spellboard” using eye movements to spell out words, told his father through the device what had happened. The soldier’s father immediately told the floor staff who assured him that Mr. Flores wouldn’t work with his son anymore while they investigated.

    Now October 2013, and finally Mr. Flores was arrested on aggravated sexual assault and arraigned at the Cook County bond court for bail of $50,000.


    The victim’s father said he learned of the August incident the day after it happened. “It was shock at first and then anger afterward. You know … just kind of knowing that something like that could have happened. They deal with children and all different kinds of injures and people that are basically vulnerable to begin with. That’s what really floored me.

    “The first initial shock was just, did you just tell me what you told me? Because my communication with him isn’t really easy,” the father said. His son raises his eyes for yes and lowers them for no. He also uses a board to spell out questions.

    “I asked him all the questions and basically I stewed on it and I let the RIC administration know,” the father said. Then he asked his son what he wanted to do. “He told me, ‘Yes, I want to file charges.’

    “I’m proud of him for saying something,’’ his father said.

    He believes Chicago police, prosecutors and the institute conducted a thorough investigation.

    “The police and the state’s attorney’s office have been very outgoing with me and keeping me updated with what’s going on,’’ he said. “I think they’ve done a good job.”

    “That type of stuff runs through your mind. You think about the facility. They deal with children and all different kinds of injures and people that are basically vulnerable to begin with. That’s what really floored me.’’

    He said he’s well acquainted with the institute’s entire nursing staff and all of them, except for Flores, have been exceptional.

    “He was the only one I didn’t really know,’’ the father said. “The rest of the staff is unbelievable.

    “He (Flores) didn’t really say much to me. Most say, ‘Hi I have your son tonight.’ And he was the only one who was kind of different.’’

    “They are they are the No. 1 rehabilitation place in the country,’’ he said of the institute. “They do wonderful things there.’’- Chicago Tribune

    The son remains on the active duty rolls. While on a tour in Afghanistan an incident in June left the son a quadriplegic and unable to speak without a special device that records his eye movements. The father refused to elaborate on the incident and did not want the name of his son public.


    Mentally, he’s 100 percent there,’’ his father said. “Him and I rattle through a conversation pretty good.”

    He hopes his son will be able to speak down the road. The father says he does his best to stay upbeat.

    “It’s life. . .You learn to adapt and move on. You never know one day to the next what’s going on. . .With our family, we’ve learned to adapt,” he said. “We’re working on getting him back home.’’-Chicago Tribune

    Crush either head (or both) would be fine with me.
