OSLO, Norway (AP) – Health authorities expressed shock and disgust Friday over reports that employees at a hospital in southern Norway threw a party in a post-mortem room and covered an autopsy table with a white cloth and candles.
“This is unacceptable and unheard of,” Health Minister Sylvia Brustad told state broadcaster NRK. “It makes me sick.”
Management at the Fredrikstad hospital said it learned two weeks ago that employees had staged a Christmas celebration in the room where post-mortem examinations were performed.
NRK said the revelers had covered the autopsy table with a white table cloth, lit candles and decked it with beer bottles.
