Medics were fired after causing outrage when footage of them dancing and joking next to the naked body of an unconscious patient leaked online.

In the damning video, five doctors and nurses in scrubs laugh raucously in an operating theatre – next to them lying face down is the fully naked body of an unconscious male patient.

The man had been prepared for surgery when the operation team decided to laugh and joke around him, with one nurse spraying his body with disinfectant while gyrating alongside the hospital bed.

The abhorrent scene was caught on camera but the hospital staff – mainly women – had no idea the offensive video would be leaked online where it caused widespread outrage among viewers.

Thousands of people shared the clip from the Santa Cruz de Bocagrande clinic in Bolivar, Colombia, on social media with many calling for those involved to be named and shamed.

Authorities confirmed the five people featured in the clip have been sacked, saying the video breaks “all health protocols”.

In a statement, clinic bosses said: “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.”

It is believed a member of the operating team filmed the footage on a mobile phone and it later ended up on Facebook.

The clinic apologised and added the video went “against the dignity of the patient and are breaking the protocols and the political values of our institution focused on the quality and humanisation of our service”.

A spokesman 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.”
