Suhail Ahmad Khan Durani, 35, was convicted on three counts of indecently assaulting the woman by grabbing her breasts and two counts of digitally penetrating her.

The offences occurred at Royal Perth Hospital on February 20 last year when the diabetic woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was admitted with high blood sugar levels.

During sentencing today, Judge Allan Fenbury said Durani would be eligible for parole after serving half his sentence.
