"It was going to be an extensive time before the hospice nurse could be there, so these three employees were supposed to closely monitor the patient," a spokesperson for the Jefferson Police Department was quoted as saying in the WSB-TV news report.

The incident was also reported by another employee at the care facility after seeing the video on Snapchat.

This is not the first case of nurses being investigated for inappropriate behavior while on duty.

In September 2011, five nurses at Denver Health Medical Center were suspended after they viewed a deceased male patient's body and made inappropriate remarks about his genitals, as reported by Denver Post.

The nurses allegedly opened a body bag to view the deceased patient's body and admired the size of his genitals.

The incident happened between March 31 and April 3, 2017, but was only reported a month later after another nurse overheard a conversation about it.

"Multiple staff members viewed the victim while he was incapacitated, including after he was deceased," according to a police report.
