Which of the following is a requirement of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1986?

The families of dying or dead patients must be approached about organ and tissue donation.

Explanation

All hospitals are mandated to establish protocols for identifying potential tissue and organ donors.

Incorrect options:

•The donor organization does not have to be notified by the physician; the primary nurse can do this also.

•The physician can approach the family about organ and tissue donation, but ideally, this is done by a representative of the donor organization.

•The medical examiner does not have to be notified unless he or she is directly involved in the patient's case.
