BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) A nurse in Bucks County is accused of secretly videotaping several patients, including a 17-year-old girl.

Investigators say James Close, a nurse at Penn Medicine Dermatology in Lower Makefield Township, videotaped eight female patients while they undressed.

We are appalled by the action of this former employee and we are cooperating fully with the investigation, said Susan Phillips, a spokeswoman for Penn Medicine.

Close was charged with videotaping the teen on Feb. 13. On Monday, he was charged with 43 additional counts involving the original victim and seven others.

Close remains behind bars and will have a preliminary arraignment on Tuesday.

Authorities are continuing their investigation, but fear there may be more victims.

Its very disturbing. You have a trust with people in the medical profession, said Matt Weintraub, Bucks County District Attorney. Im afraid there may be more. Thats my concern at this point. We want to make sure we take care of the victims that we have. Make them feel safe.
