Procedures for Anatomy Gifts
Gifts Registry will call us with a first call and we can also make an
after-death referral to them. If they call us, they have already screened
the body and accepted. If we are making a referral, we will need to screen
the body and then make the referral to AGR. They will contact the family
and make the decision for acceptance. They will collect all DC info and
fax it over to us along with how many DCs the family wants.
- Once the first call is taken and entered in SRS, create
a pick up notice and send over, along with the first call sheet to
Dispatch at email@example.com.
If the driver arrives to where the decedent is located and finds that the
decedent is decomposing and/or possibly unsuitable for donation for any
reason, please call Dispatch and Anatomy Gifts Registry ASAP!
