A group of doctors and nurses was caught on video as they laughed unprofessionally and danced around a patient who seem to be unconscious, lying face down on a surgery table and waiting for a surgery procedure at the Santa Cruz de Bocagrande clinic in Bolivar, Colombia.
One member of the operating team took the video, which shows nurses and doctors in scrubs laughing as they twerk and dance around the patient.
Local authorities have confirmed they fired five workers that was seen in the video, saying the act breaks “all health protocols”.
“The respect for dignity of every patient is the most important thing in our clinic, therefore we strongly regret the inappropriate behaviour of those who are working as professionals in the health sector, seen in the video recorded in one of our surgery rooms.”, released statement from the hospital board.
One spokeperson expressed dismayed and said, “This is the first time in seven years of good service that we are living a situation like this and we have taken some measures in order not to repeat these horrific acts.”
