Release of Information Rules

The Utah Medical Examiners Act 26-4-17(3) states:  “The medical examiner shall promptly deliver copies of all reports, findings, and records gathered or compiled in the investigation of a death to the decedent’s next-of-kin, legal representative, or physicians who attended the decedent during the year before death, upon their written request for the release of documents.”

As per this requirement we cannot discuss with the media any details of a specific case.  For general topics and news stories that do not pertain to a particular death investigation, please coordinate your request through the Department of Health Public Information Officer.
