Nurses suspended for admiring dead patient's genitals

By NYDailyNews

Five Denver Health Medical Center nurses were disciplined for admiring a patient's genitals after he'd gone on to meet his maker.

According to KMGH, the health workers had helped themselves to a peek at the deceased man's penis, at one point going so far as to open a body bag to view his departed parts.

"Multiple staff members viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including after he was deceased," a Denver Police Department report states. "The complainant, Risk Management for Denver Health, made a mandatory report."

The sex organ scrutinizing lasted from March 31 to April 3.

Two nurses were initially punished when a coworker overheard a comment made by one of them and reported it to hospital staff in May, with three additional nurses getting disciplined as the investigation concluded.

Four of the health workers involved have returned to work at the Denver Health Medical Center.

One of the nurses left but wasn't fired.
