Denver nurses punished for ogling dead patient’s genitals and gossiping about it later

Published

Five nurses have been suspended from a Colorado hospital for uncovering a dead patient’s body and gawking at his genitals.

The nurses admired the size of the man’s genitalia while he was incapacitated and opened up a body bag to view his nude body after he died, according to a tip sent to KMGH-TV.

A spokesman for Denver Health Medical Center confirmed the nurses had been suspended three weeks for viewing the patient’s body in early April and making inappropriate comments about it.

A different nurse overheard one of them comment about the deceased patient’s genitals in May, and the incident was reported to hospital staff.

The hospital then made a mandatory report to police, but investigators decided to allow hospital officials to handle the incident themselves.

Two nurses were initially disciplined, but three others were suspended after the hospital concluded the investigation.

Four of the nurses have returned to work but the fifth is no longer employed by the hospital, which said only that nurse was not fired.

The names of the nurses and the unit where they worked were not released.

"If the new scandal involving President Trump and Ukraine is as bad as it seems -- and that is, of course, a very big if at this early stage -- the House will have no choice but to impeach, consequences be damned," he writes.

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump was "stepping into a dangerous minefield" if he had offered U.S. military aid to Ukraine in exchange for damaging information about Joe Biden.

The California Democrat said the administration was violating federal law by blocking a whistleblower complaint against the president from congressional review, and she said Trump and his acting director of national intelligence must end their "stonewalling."

"If the President has done what has been alleged, he is stepping into a dangerous minefield with serious repercussions for his Administration and our democracy," Pelosi said.

‘This is deadly serious’: House Judiciary member warns Trump’s whistleblower stonewalling is impeachable

Published

on

A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee warned that President Donald Trump's refusal to release a whistleblower complaint against him could be an impeachable offense.

An intelligence official filed the complaint last month, which the inspector general recommended for congressional oversight, but acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to turn over at the Justice Department's recommendation.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), a senior member of the judiciary committee where impeachment would begin, warned the president to follow the law -- or else.
