Doctors and nurses at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City, Philippines, face lawsuits and probable penalties over a YouTube video that showed a medical extraction of an aerosol can from a man’s rectum.
A hospital spokesman said making the video for nonmedical reasons and making fun of the patient violated the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.
The patient, known only as Danilo, has said he plans to sue everyone involved in the incident.
In the footage, the doctor who extracted the can of Black Suede body spray shouts “Baby out!” as he removes it. He then sprays the contents of the can at nurses and doctors watching the procedure.
Danilo has said he got drunk, hooked up with a guy, and doesn’t remember how the can got inside his rear end.
Police have not figured out who uploaded the video clip to YouTube.
