While we make every effort to honor someone's wish to donate, we must carefully review each potential donor's medical history at the time of death with the health-care provider or family before granting final acceptance into the program.
Reasons a donation cannot be accepted include, but not limited to, any of the following:
The UMMC Body Donation Program reserves the right to accept or reject a donation at the time of death if any of these conditions or diseases are present. Therefore, it is our recommendation that alternative plans are made with a death care provider (funeral provider), in the event that the body is unsuitable for donation.
