5 Nurses Suspended After Admiring A Patient’s Genitals

Huffpost

The nurses in Denver opened a body bag to look, the hospital admits.

Five nurses at the Denver Health Medical Center were suspended for three weeks after they admired a man’s genitals, both while he was incapacitated at the hospital and after he died.

The incidents occurred between March 31 and April 3, 2017, but weren’t reported until May 8, according to Denver7 News.

In one of the incidents, the nurses opened a body bag to view the man’s sex organs, a hospital official confirmed to the TV station.

Officials discovered what happened after one of the nurses made a comment that was heard by another nurse, who wasn’t involved in the incidents. That nurse reported the matter, who in turn called Denver police.

Denver Health Medical Center released the following statement to HuffPost:

“Their actions, which violated our policies and our Code of Conduct, were promptly reported to appropriate governmental authorities, including the Denver Police Department and the Colorado State Board of Nursing.

“An internal Denver Health investigation resulted in disciplinary action against all those responsible for the incident and the patient’s next of kin was notified.”

The hospital apologized for the nurses’ actions in the statement to HuffPost, saying, “Denver Health is truly sorry this happened. This incident it is not an appropriate representation of the high-quality care and compassion our clinical staff strive to provide to our patients.”
