Five nurses in Denver, Colorado, have been suspended after being caught opening a body bag to view the dead patient's genitals.

The nurses have been suspended for three weeks, a hospital spokesperson said.

A different nurse overhead one of the suspended nurses talk about it, Fox 31 Denver reports.

According to the Huffington Post, the nurses admired the man's genitals while he was still alive, but incapacitated, and after he had died.
