GOT THIS FROM OVER AT MJHD-UCLA HAS A BODY DONATION PROGRAM

Post by Guest on Sat Aug 22, 2009 7:30 pm

Most celebs in the LA, are born or die in Cedar Saini, Anyone know why he went to UCLA, is it because of proximity or is because of the Body Donation program? They must have all types of bodies there. They also mention how they preserve them too.
http://donatedbodyprogram.ucla…..fm?id=32#1

  1. What is the procedure for registering a body for anatomical study?
    Anyone who is 18 years of age or older who is of sound mind may donate their body by completing the forms and returning the original to this office. Also, under some circumstances, a spouse, registered domestic partner, or attorney-in-fact, or children of the donor may make a donation at the time of death.



  2. Are there any costs involved in the donation of one’s body?
    No, the Donated Body Program underwrites all costs associated with the removal, preservation and final disposition. However, there may be nominal fee charged to the immediate next of kin if the removal from place of death is in excess of 75 miles of UCLA.



  3. Should the donation be filed with my will?
    In most instances, the will may not be read until several days after the donor’s death. Because of time constraints when the death occurs, it is important that the donor’s next of kin or agent knows the donor’s wishes at the time of enrollment and that they notify the program immediately after death occurs.



  4. Can a body be donated from which other body part donations have been given?
    To be accepted, the body must have all vital organs intact (brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver). Bodies from which other vital organs have been removed for transplant purposes cannot be accepted.



  5. If I donate my body to the program, will I need the services of a funeral home for any reason?
    It is not necessary to use a funeral provider when donating a body. In some cases, however, family members may wish to have a funeral provider coordinate a memorial service. The family is responsible for any additional costs in these situations.



  6. Will it be possible to have a viewing or funeral service for the deceased with the body present?
    It is not possible to hold a viewing or conduct a funeral for the donor due to time constraints. However, most families do hold memorial services for their loved ones shortly after the donation. Local funeral providers can assist in pre-arranging for these events.



  7. What happens to the body after the Donated Body Program accepts it?
    Following receipt of the body, certain biomedical testing, followed by preservation for long-term study is carried out or the body maybe used immediately. Studies could easily last over several years. Students of medicine will study these bodies in an anatomy laboratory course. Bodies are available for research purposes in a variety of fields.



  8. What happens to the body after the studies are completed?
    Following anatomical study for medical education and/or research, and in keeping within state code, the body is disposed of by any legal method in a professional and dignified manner. Remains are not available for return to the family.



  9. Will it be possible to receive a report of medical findings, cause of death or details of the specific studies?
    We do not provide any reports of pathological findings, cause of death or details of specific studies. Certified copies of death certificates can be obtained through the department of birth and death registration at the county within which the death occurred.



  10. Will the body be studied at the University of California , Los Angeles?
    The majority of the bodies are used for studies or medical research at the University of California , Los Angeles . Occasionally we receive a request from institutions of higher education or medical research outside UCLA. If the request is approved, we supply anatomical material assuming certain assurances are met. Following completion of the use, the body must be returned to UCLA for appropriate final disposition.



  11. Does the Donated Body Program ever refuse to accept a body?
    Donated body donors must be properly registered prior to death to ensure acceptance into the program. In addition, certain approved 3rd-parties may donate a body at the time of death. The family should be made aware that if the donor dies due to an infectious disease such as HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis, or Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, body weight is in excess of 250 lbs., has suffered a violent death, is a victim of suicide or has had vital organs removed for transplant purposes, the body will be not be accepted. The UCLA Donated Body Program strongly recommends that an alternative plan be but into place should the body not be accepted into the program at time of death. Local funeral providers can assist in pre-arranging for this possibility.



  12. I travel a great deal. . .What if I should die outside the immediate area?

    Local medical schools may not be able to accept the donation of an unexpected death because most donated body programs are restrictive in the way a donor would register into a program. Should an unexpected death occur, an autopsy may be required depending upon the laws of the state in which the event occurs, thus making the body unacceptable for study.



  13. What happens if the donor relocated outside of the geographical area?
    The donor should contact a local medical school to have their arrangement transferred.



  14. What if I change my mind, can I rescind my donation?

    Yes, by notifying this office in writing.







HMMM...THIS IS INTERESTING... confused

I'm assuming since the hospital is linked to the university that they would indeed have a need for body donations considering med students need them for study. It's sort of touchy subject, but many do consider donating their bodies to science/research just like signing up for organ donation. I don't know whether or not there would be away to procure a body as replacement during all the chaos (someone had to be on the inside) and then use the excuse of it being a mix-up? I don't know, maybe the person donating his/her body was a huge MJ fan. How bittersweet. It's almost comical, but at the same time a bit morbid to think about.
