Five nurses at the Denver Health Medical were suspended for three weeks after opening a body bag and looking at the genitals of a deceased man.
According to KMGH news, the nurses were admiring the patient’s genitals and were disciplined.
A Denver Health spokesman said the incident was reported after another nurse overheard a comment made by a suspended nurse.
But these nurses weren’t the only ones taking a peek. Other hospital staff according to Denver police, “viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including while he was deceased.”
The hospital reports that the nurses were off the job for three weeks and have returned. Of the five, one nurse has not returned.
This was not as a result of the incident.
