Donor Reference Manual Available for Hospital Professionals

Gift of Hope has revised and updated the Donor Reference Manual it makes available to hospital professionals to inform and educate them about the donation process and their specific roles in producing successful donation outcomes. Donor Reference ManualGift of Hope’s Donation Coordinators began distributing the manual to hospital nursing and clinical staff in late August.

The Donor Reference Manual serves as a ready reference for nursing and clinical staff to get answers to questions they may have about organ and tissue donation and the donation process.

The manual covers such areas as:

  • The donor referral process
  • First-person authorization
  • The specifics of donor authorization
  • The specifics of donor management
  • How and when to talk with families about donation
  • How to work with coroners and medical examiners
  • Tissue recovery, reconstruction and uses
  • Protocols, laws and regulations governing donation

The manual is available in two formats — as a three-ring binder to store on hospital units and as a searchable electronic document available for download here.

For more information on the Donor Reference Manual and to obtain one for your unit, contact the Gift of Hope Donation Coordinator serving your hospital.
