A group of doctors in Michigan is being investigated for posing with human organs and playing 'Price is Right' style games online.

The doctors, who are employed by Spectrum Health System in Grand Rapids, appear to be standing over patients who are lying on operating tables during surgical procedures.

One of the docs appears to be issuing a challenge to others in the medical field, holding an organ that had been removed from a cancer patient, and referencing the rules of the long-running TV game show.

“The other game we play in the OR is guess that weight,” the poster of the organ picture wrote. “It applies to much more than just babies. As always, ‘Price is Right’ rules apply so if you go over then you’re out!”

After the Instagram posts discovered, Grand Rapids TV Station WOOD messaged the administrator of the page. The page was taken down shortly thereafter.

A representative from Spectrum Health Systems issued the following statement:

“The privacy of patients and the confidentiality of their medical information is a priority at Spectrum Health. We were disappointed to learn that surgical images were posted on an Instagram account used by a group of residents and are taking steps to resolve this issue. These posts do not follow our code of excellence or our expectations for team member behavior. The Instagram account has been closed and a full investigation is underway.
