Cordt Kassner, CEO of Hospice Analytics, posted a blog exploring the role that hospices can plan in addressing issues of organ and tissue donation. Kassner acknowledges that hospices are quite limited, because of the patients we serve, in addressing organ donation.  When it comes to tissue donations, he asserts, “Tissue donation is a different matter. Tissues (e.g., skin, bone, heart valves, eyes, etc.) can be donated up to 24 hours following death, and the demand for tissues is also great.” Kassner provides resources, and encourages hospice leaders to ask patients about organ and tissue donations, and to include information about this in hospice admission packets.
