Dorothy the Medical Examiner Investigator Returns

Trigger warning: In this episode, we talk in detail about topics some people may find traumatic. We will be taking about dead bodies, autopsy, crimes, suicide and other graphic topics. No personal patient information is revealed. Listen with caution.

If you've made it this far, welcome to Season 3 of Nursing Uncensored! It's October so Adrianne will be celebrating Halloween and creepy things all month long. In that spirit, Adrianne invited back Dorothy, Medical Examiner Investigator to talk about her job in greater detail. She walks us through her role in both a hospital death and a community death investigation. We talk about the circumstances and processes involved with autopsy and decomposition of the human body. We also give some book recommendations for those of you who want to read more about the Medical Examiner role.
Join us for this creepy and informative conversation.
