...by your "no injury" reasoning drink spiking is harmless...
...and having sex with dead people.

And there may not have been physical injury done but they did not know that and so they investigated.
They had no grounds to investigate without signs of physical injury.
The point of investigating is to discover if there is injury taking place.
If a child was being molested and the cops were given a tip off then they would have to investigate the situation correct?
I would hope that if I gave a tip to the cops that someone was being harmed they would follow through with it. That's what I'm paying them to do.
I'm trying to say that he could have done it in a less suspicious manner in order to avoid suspicion.
It's as Rockpuck put it, it's the home's property.
This man could have explained his situation to the care home manager privately and worked something out.

Ultimately, having sex with a sick person, a patient, one who is in a coma is just wrong. Whether they are married or not. The excuses are laughable. It's better than cheating, he just needed to get his rocks off, whatever. If you love and respect someone you do not violate their personal space without their permission or when they are unaware of you doing so. That's my personal opinion at least.

As a healthcare worker, I can assure you that preventing sexual assault in a nursing home (or any healthcare environment) is a BIG deal.
Was it sexual assault? Married or not, the woman was not able to give consent and that alone makes it sexual assault.
The "gentleman rapist" of notariety several years ago was very "polite" and "tender" with his victims but they were still non-consenting to the act of penetration (legal definition of rape).
This man may have had the best of intentions but we all know what the road to hell is paved with. Very poor judgment on his part and technically and legally=rape.

Rape is not a serious crime now? So your wife would be fine with you having sex with her while she's sleeping or in a coma? that wouldn't bother her at all?
The responses in this thread disturb me much more than the story itself.
She did not consent.. for all we know he may have been a very good husband.. or they may not have had sex for the last ten years. Marriage does not make rape ethically okay.. even if raping your wife is still legal in some backwards american states..
It's comforting to know that nursing homes are using such precautions and I think cameras should be standard in all coma wards and where patients may be vulnerable.
