Re: ? Do you embalm at Autopsy?

From:Jason Fowler

I've been to a number of hospitals within the last year that will only do hospitals if the bodies have ALREADY been embalmed.  I have not, however, seen bodies embalmed while the autopsy is being done.

Just curious about what other institutions may be doing about this... and
any information that you might have about what is considered "standard of
practice" with regard to this issue.
