DENVER -- Five nurses at Denver Health Medical Center were suspended for three weeks after opening a bag to inappropriately view a deceased patient's genitals, a hospital spokesman said Tuesday.

The incident was reported after a different nurse overheard one of the suspended nurses make a comment about it, according to a Denver Health spokesman.

The hospital said the employees involved were off the job for three weeks and have since returned.

However, one nurse no longer works at the hospital but was not terminated because of the incident.

The names or medical unit of the suspended nurses were not made public.
