Our staff will do all that we can to have the deceased ready to be released to a funeral home or family within 24 hours after arriving at our facility. Additional testing, investigation, or confirmation of identification may delay this process.
The family should begin selecting a funeral home to handle their arrangements.
When meeting with the representative from the funeral home, simply inform them that your loved one is at the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner (OME). The funeral home will contact our office and arrange for transportation of your loved one to the funeral home.
You do not need to contact our office yourself.
