A Denver, Colo., hospital is in the news because some of its nurses opened up a body bag to check out the size of a dead man’s genitals, this after already viewing him “while he was incapacitated,” according to The Denver Channel.

The Channel reported that five nurses at Denver Health Medical Center were suspended for three weeks due to incidents that occurred between March 31 and April 3, 2017 and were reported May 8. According to hospital spokesman Josh Rasmussen, the nurses opened a body bag, checked out the corpse’s member and then commented about it within earshot of a sixth nurse, who felt it was inappropriate and eventually reported it to hospital staff.

The Channel said it received information about what happened that was confirmed by the hospital:

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.

A different nurse heard one of the disciplined nurses make a comment in May that the nurse felt was inappropriate and reported it to hospital staff.

A police report confirmed the account: “Multiple staff members viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including after he was deceased.”

Four of the nurses have since returned to work at the hospital, and the fifth is “no longer is employed by the hospital, but wasn’t terminated,” according to the Channel.

Police said there wasn’t enough evidence that a crime had taken place to file charges. The incident will, however, go on the nurses’ permanent records at the hospital.
