Organ Donation


In Ohio we are asked the question “would you like to be an organ donor?” every time we renew our drivers license. I believe at that time if you decide you would like to donate any organs after time of death, there should be some sort of social worker there to find out exactly what organs you would like to donate. A relative of mine died unexpectedly one month ago, and after her death her husband received a phone call about 1/2 hour after she had expired from the hospital asking what organs he would like to have donated from her body. I just found this not to be the right time to call someone that just lost his or her spouse. They also had called back several times that evening for more questions for him about donating organs. In an autopsy report does the medical examiner report what organs were donated and to whom? And do they use these donations for science?
