Useable organs/eyes/tissues include: heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas, small intestine, eye tissue, heart for valves, pericardium, and bones and tissues of the upper and lower body.

I authorize NORS to obtain my complete medical record and autopsy report.

I authorize NORS to disclose all information, as necessary, to individuals and entities who receive or use my anatomical gift.
I understand that my estate, next of kin or other survivors shall be responsible for all of my hospital, medical and funeral expenses and that NORS shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred after my death that are directly related to the recovery of my anatomical gift.
