Larger Decedents Impact Equipment Purchases

We have budgeted for a new lifting device for the office to lift and move bodies in the office, to ensure that it is robust enough for the larger folks we are seeing through the office. We have purchased body bags that will be big enough for some of the folks we are seeing these days. We are making certain that the new transport gurneys we are buying are tough enough.

I hadn’t thought about this, but we do need a new autopsy table, so I will think about this now:

The Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner's Office has a new addition: An autopsy table that can support 1,000 pounds.
