Five nurses suspended for checking out the size of a dead man’s penis


The management ofDenver Health Medical Centersuspended five nurses earlier this year for opening a body bag to see a deceased man’s penis and discussing the size with other hospital staff.

According to the hospital administrators, the inappropriate incident took place between late March and early April, but it was not reported to the supervisors until a month later.

“Multiple staff members viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including after he was deceased,” a Denver Police report says.

The Denver Police Department investigated the matter, but later found that the nurses committed no crime and allowed hospital officials to discipline them internally.

On Tuesday, Denver Health Medical Center spokesman Josh Rasmussen confirmed the incident to Denver7 News. He said the five nurses opened the body bag at different times to view the deceased man’s genitals, then discussed the body part with other hospital staff.

According to him, another nurse overheard the nurses talking about the deceased man’s genitals. She reported the incident to Risk Management officials who launched an investigated.

It was also reported that the nurses who inappropriately viewed the deceased man’s genitals were suspended. Four of the nurses who were not identified have since returned to work.
