Kiritkuma C. Shah, of West Windsor was charged April 11 with one count of criminal sexual contact, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Officials say Shah unzipped his pants and improperly touched a 45-year-old patient who was medicated and undergoing a heart monitoring test. The woman’s daughter alerted the authorities after the March 16 incident in Edison.

Shah was dismissed from this job. He was an EKG technician at the hospital since 1996, officials say.

The investigation is still active and authorities are asking anyone with information about this or a similar incident, to call Detective Cimmino of the Edison Police Department at (732) 248-7400, or Investigator Capraru of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3600.
