[Histonet] Releasing specimens to patients

From:"Garcia, Amanda"

Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any input you all may have to
this question.  Do any of you have a policy regarding the release of
fetuses to the family?  We have a 12 week fetus that the family would
like to pick up and this hospital does not have a policy regarding this
issue.  At a previous private pathology lab that I worked at we have a
policy stating that we could only release this to a funeral home.  If
anyone has a policy and wouldn't mind sharing it with me it would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,
