A South Florida hospital worker was arrested after police say he raped a mental health patient on New Year’s Eve.
Fernando Felix Ramos-Garcia, a Westchester General Hospital mental health technician, was arrested on Jan. 1, one day after he sneaked into a mental health patient’s room, forcing her to perform oral sex, according to a Miami-Dade police arrest report.
After that, Ramos-Garcia stepped out into the hallway to make sure nobody was nearby.
“When it was clear, Ramos Garcia reentered her room, covered her mouth, and forced intercourse causing her to bleed,” the arrest report said.

Ramos-Garcia was booked into Miami-Dade County, jail records show.
