Yes I am, have been since I turned 18. Something I've always felt strongly about
As you touched on before Ngaiz, harvesting organs is the last thing on the doctors mind when it comes to providing treatment to the critically ill.
So for anyone worried that this might be the case, saving & sustaining life comes before everything else.
Working in ED sadly I have been involved in such tragic cases, organ donation does not even enter into the equation, these decisions take place afterwards.
Many years ago, in the UK there was a scandal in relation to medics obtaining 'human parts' against the wishes of family or the deceased.. for a while I 'opted out' of organ donation. But I've came to my senses now.
For anyone that isn't sure or is against, I ask them this.. would you be happy to receive organs?
I am a donor but not everything.
I thought they recently changed the legislation and now family cannot dispute?
yes, I have registered many years ago. im not sure who else in my family is, but I certainly have registered. marie
