Ernest Green, 28, was held for allegedly raping the patient who came to the facility to seek malaria treatment.
The tourist, who is also a social worker, had visited the Mole National Park last Wednesday from her Volta Region base when she took ill and was rushed to the hospital.
Police said the Mr Green asked the victim if she would prefer a private ward when she was checked in but she opted for the sideward because of her condition.
The tourist told the police that the suspect frequented her ward many times before the rape incident.
Mr Green sensed the victim's discomfort with the frequent visits and asked her to relax.
She said because of her condition she could not get onto the bed, and hence reluctantly accepted Mr Green's help.
Mr. Green realized her situation and offered to help her get to her bed. However, she said, upon helping her to the bed, the nurse started fondling her breast and ended up having unprotected sex with her.
Mr. Green was later arrested after the victim reported the incident at the Damango Police station.
