Michele KnoyAs a first responder, I get a lot of questions about whether people should request (or pay for private even) autopsy. Do you have advice I can give them? Typically I tell them that they need to decide if they are going to regret having it done, or not having it done. And I stress that the utmost care & respect is given. Any suggestions on something else I can say?

Lorrie Lee Wilmouth-PalmerThis is good to see, I’ve had the I guess you can say misfortune of knowing a number of people who died unexpectedly and or of suspicious circumstances, they were sent to the local medical examiner in (( Roanoke, Virginia )) for an autopsy to determine cause of death….

#LiveStreamAutopsy Some cases might not work to show the body.* We want to do what we can rather than nothing at all. We may still be able to bring you into the room, show the people working and talk you through the case live – closer to an interactive podcast.

A. Yes – might still be interesting.
B. No – the visual of the body is too important. Skip the case.
C. Give it a shot.

Thanks for helping us set this up!

*Examples would be cases without family authorization or cases technically difficult to do while preserving confidentiality (say, multiple tatoos), etc. See MoreSee Less

Sean BoswellI’m going to say B. Because what would hinder you from showing the body? The condition of the body?

Mellissa MaxwellPreferably B, but if it’s not possible in respect to the patient’s family, A or C. Same answers really. I took a nursing class and while it was basic, I have a weird morbid curiosity with seeing the inside of things and how it works.

Brizerk WebbI find it mildly disheartening that we need to reiterate that there is a HUMAN BEING on your table. Kindly donated in the name of science. Respect the dead and those who are kind enough to educate us. Rant concluded.

Stephanie BoveDefinitely A! I’m so fascinated with autopsy and I can see you do care for the after death.. you take good care of the body and respect it. Keep up the good work!!

Stephanie GavinC. If you delete and ban, they will just make new pages and come back with a vengeance. It’s pretty hard to try and ban them all day after day, and honestly, will nvr work. While i respect that there is a person who was loved and cared for that you’re working on, some don’t. It’s best to not pay trolls any mind. They eventually get bored and go away.

Erin AnneShort answer: B

Long answer: The majority of comments I saw were ok…when a video like that goes viral, it can be a little shocking to people who have never seen anything like it, but it appeared most were genuinely interested; and it’s true that not everyone knows what being dead actually IS. That’s part of why this is important. So, I’d say B at this time, and use it as a teaching moment for the curious. If it didn’t involve a human being, I’d say let them happen, but out of respect for the deceased and their family, remove the deliberate trollers.

Matt RobinsonA. When someone’s body is the forum for public education, nothing but appreciation and respect should be shown. Leave the sarcasm and troll comments for another page, and focus on the education.

#VideoFamilyShare What should we do for families who authorize video?

A. Nothing. I appreciate it, but let them grieve
B. Make an open e-card if people want to express something (click, comment, video, etc.). (Presume this would be moderated).
C. Something else (tell us).

Kim AdkinsA thank you on the video is enough. Don’t leave it open for people to be ugly when a family is grieving.

Avatar

Debbie BerryhillC: I have to agree with Kim Adkins. There are too many jerks on line who will make inappropriate comments if there is an open e-card. I know some funeral homes will allow users to "light" candles on a web page. Maybe something like that so the families can see the number of "candles" were lit on behalf of their loved ones in a way of thanking the family.

Riki RumschlagPerhaps donate a large bouquet of flowers for the funeral?
Offer to make a handprint turkey from the deceased hand? I know that’s a very macabre and morbid idea; Just trying to add some ideas ๐Ÿ™‚
