The Morgue Administrative Staff initiates the computerized documentation of each case and notifies the correct agencies in regards to removal of the deceased. The autopsy assistants' main duties include assisting the pathologist during examination and also transporting deceased persons from their respective places of death to the HCIFS. Preference funeral homes, those selected by families, are allowed to transport natural deaths to the HCIFS for examination. Occasionally, an autopsy assistant will be responsible for preserving and collecting evidence, collecting and safe keeping of the deceased's personal effects, and assisting law enforcement personnel at crime scenes. The utilization of autopsy assistants at crime scenes is beneficial due to their knowledge and experience.
