peace and order from turmoil and chaos."

Chapter 1

CHAPTER 1

Embalming: Social, Psychological, and Ethical Considerations


Regulations
Regulations

  • Some funeral homes are regulated by their state agencies and all funeral homes are regulated by several government agencies.


Death denying society
Death Denying Society

  • I personally strongly disagree with the author’s attempt to make people that don’t wish to view the dead seem like some type of mentally ill person that is in denial.

    • Viewing is a CHOICE, not a requirement.

    • People should not be made to feel like their CHOICE to not view is a reflection of how much they loved their family member here on earth.

  • Viewing is not always appropriate.

    • I served a family once that the husband/father had died. He beat his wife and molested his daughter. Did they need to see him? In this case no, they were glad he was dead.

    • What about a family that was with the person when the death occurred? Everyone had a chance to say goodbye at the nursing home or house. Did they need to view? Maybe yes, maybe no, but it’s their decision.

This discussion will have already taken place with the family through a medical worker before the funeral home is called.

Coroner or Medical Examiner donation. It is not the practitioners responsibility or place to ask the family if they want to consider organ donation. This discussion will have already taken place with the family through a medical worker before the funeral home is called.

      • You may not tell a family that embalming is required when direct cremation or immediate burial is selected as the final disposition.

    • Continued:

      • You may not tell the family embalming is required when a casket is to be closed when refrigeration is available and when the law does not require it.

      • You must disclose the above in writing to a family on a general price list.

      • You may not charge a fee for embalming unless the law requires it, or prior approval has been given by the authorized person.

    • Continued:

      • If you cannot reach a family and go ahead an embalm the body you can only charge the family if the they choose a service that requires embalming. For example, if they choose cremation and didn’t want the body embalmed then you can’t charge them for it.

      • If you charge for embalming then you must write on the contract the reason that the charge applies.
