Prior to 1970 approximately 50% of hospital deaths were routinely autopsied, today the rates have fallen below 5%. Reasons are varied, but the task of improving medicine and delivering modern-rapid healthcare, while maintaining fiscal austerity is a challenging endeavor facing many hospitals today. Dilapidated morgues and neglected autopsy suites are a common sight in hospital facilities, and more importantly numerous families and physicians are left with unanswered questions. Our company provides autopsy support services utilizing outside board certified pathologists in our CAP accredited medical laboratory. We also offer “diener” services to assist with your in-house autopsies.
