Autopsy Consent Form Mobile App
This Autopsy Consent Form Mobile App offers a sample consent form to assist pathologists and hospitals in developing their own forms for use in securing consent for the performance of autopsies.
How does it work?
This sample form template should not be adopted without careful consideration of applicable state law, institutional policies, and local practice. It should be tailored to reflect all of these considerations as well as the drafting style of the particular pathology group and hospital. Use this app for autopsy consent form guidance for the purposes of a hospital autopsy service. Use this app to assist a medical examiner in facilitating the autopsy process through established, informed consent. Use this app to legally perform a complete autopsy of a deceased person's body in a medical examiner's office.
Please note that this sample does not cover obtaining consent for the removal or organs or tissue for transplantation. A separate form is required for that purpose. In any event, the College recommends that, prior to adoption, any autopsy consent form be reviewed by an attorney knowledgeable about governing law and sensitive to local practice. GoCanvas allows you to export your data in a CSV Format.
