Nurse posing with corpse sparks outrage

What is the matter with some healthcare professionals? AFP reports on this case from Switzerland:

A nurse in Switzerland who posted pictures of herself on Facebook sitting next to the corpse of an old woman is coming under fire from her profession, while prosecutors say they have launched an investigation.

Saint Gallen’s regional prosecutors said they were considering a criminal investigation into the nurse, whom they did not name.

The pictures were revealed on Friday by the 20 Minuten newspaper, which said they were spotted by a reader.

Among them was an image of the nurse laughing and posing at the bedside of a dead woman, apparently in a care home, alongside off-colour comments in English.
