A NURSE touched his col­leagues’ breasts and pestered them about their sex lives, a hear­ing was told.

Cyr­iac Chacko, 39, “in­ap­pro­pri­ately” hugged a mar­ried col­league and rubbed her stom­ach and brushed her breasts at St He­lens and Knowsley Teach­ing Hospi­tal in Mersey­side, it is claimed.

Chacko, nick­named Jolly by col­leagues, de­nies fondling.

Nurse Mary Jane Ru­bino told the Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery Coun­cil: “Jolly ran­domly asked me about my hus­band and what hours he worked, to which I an­swered ‘days’.

“He then asked what our sex life was as he worked days and I worked nights. I was shocked and em­bar­rassed.

On an­other oc­ca­sion, she said Chackos be­gan the evening by ask­ing: “What kind of con­tra­cep­tives do you use?”

She said: “I thought he was ask­ing for ad­vice.

“I replied ‘in­jec­tion’ to which he replied: ‘I don’t use any con­tra­cep­tives, I just take it out’.”

Chacko is also said ac­cused of grop­ing her breasts and nuz­zling her neck on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions while hold­ing her from be­hind.

In to­tal Chacko de­nies three charges of in­ap­pro­pri­ately touch­ing the nurses be­tween Oc­to­ber and De­cem­ber 2008.
