Hour 2 Seg 1 – “Senior Moment” Segment

FOREST LAWN w/ Larry Davis re: Discussion of an autopsy and how it relates to the burial procedure @ Forest Lawn.
– Forest Lawn usually has to “restore” an autopsied body before burial.
– Embalming is done by injecting thru an artery and draining thru the veins. Organs are returned to the body cavity.
– Autopsy is usually done by the Coroner. Autopsy serves as a learning vehicle for teaching hospitals as well.
– If you die @ home and have seen a doctor in the last 20 days you probably don’t need an autopsy.
– Forest Lawn can’t pick up the remains until the Coroner has released the body.

FAMILY HOSPICE CARE w/ Dr. Howard Cohen re: Discussion of autopsy and how Family Hospice Care is involved in that process.
– Hospice deaths, as all deaths, are usually reported to the coroner but may differ in different counties..
– Only Physicians can sign a death certificate except when the death is not considered a “natural” death such as during violence, an accident, an unusual death, or unknown cause of death. In those cases, the coroner will make the determination of cause and sign the death certificate. An autopsy is often required to be a part of the Coroner’s determination of cause of death.
– If you are a hospice patient and decide to go to the hospital and are admitted and end up passing away in the hospital, then the hospital physician (or emergency physician) would be asked to sign the death certificate. If they are unwilling and the hospice physician does not have the medical records to determine the cause of death, then the coroner would take over and make the determination of the cause of death and sign the death certificate. An autopsy may be required in some of these cases as well.
