DENVER – It is generally always a bad idea to try to look at someone’s genitals without their consent — even if the person happens to be dead. Five nurses at a Denver hospital have been suspended for three weeks after they snuck a peek at a dead man’s private parts, and then gossiped about it.
Denver7, the city’s ABC affiliate, reported:
A tip to Denver7 said the nurses disciplined admired the size of the deceased patient’s genitals and at one point opened a body bag to view parts of the body. A hospital spokesman confirmed details of the incident.
“Multiple staff members viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including after he was deceased,” a Denver Police report says. “The complainant, Risk Management for Denver Health, made a mandatory report.”
The incidents occurred in March and April; the nurses ultimately returned to work at Denver Health Medical Center and no charges were filed. Rember that scene in the movie, M*A*S*H?
