The “Inside Scoop” … what we want you to know…

  • “Sepsis” is an automatic ruleout ??…
  • We have a contact # for the NOK, that should be enough…
  • Under no circumstances are you to release the body to the Funeral Home when OL has requested that you not…
  • ER Deaths: Pronounced time of death should be all you need, why do you ask about LKA or status upon arrival
  • Lab Results, the importance of getting the info = eligibility
  • Previous organ referral, OL no longer following and now the patient has died, calling back at time of cardiac death…why?
  • Pre-Transfusion blood samples…what’s the big deal???
  • Time metrics…why the rush???
  • HIPPA
