SBAR: Autopsy process change at Riddle Hospital

By Daphnée Theodore, project manager, Quality/Regulatory, Riddle Hospital


Autopsy process change at Riddle Hospital


Autopsy cases used to be sent to Drexel University/Hahnemann and families were instructed to follow up with the body retrieval accordingly


Effective March 2018, regular autopsy cases are being sent to Lankenau Medical Center (note that the process for ME/Coroner cases remains the same ) unless family requests a different hospital.


Effective immediately, please review the attached process with your teams and note the lab should be contacted at ext. 3290,  24 hours/7 days.  Communicate to family that they will need their funeral home to contact the LMC Pathology Office to pick up their loved one.

LMC Pathology Office: 484.476.2613.  If there are questions/concerns, please feel to contact Judy Smith,  laboratory manager at  or 484.227.3221.
