A former St. Francis Hospital nurse was in Tulsa County court on Monday morning on rape charges. The preliminary hearing for Olayinka Osifeso was continued to next week at the state's request.

Osifeso is accused of raping two patients in their rooms at the Tulsa hospital last summer. St. Francis fired Osifeso after an internal investigation.

Osifeso has been accused of rape in the past, but was never charged.
