Alexa, sorry that you've taken offence over the term "cadaver" however, as SueDomin rightly points out, that is the legally correct term.
What term would would you prefer?
I don't know how long you have been retired from nursing but " Last Offices" are in place and still practised now.
To explain what "Last Offices" is, is the last thing that nurses can do for their patient to care after their death.
Patients are sponged down in warm water, all IV lines, catheters and any other medical parafanalia removed. I'm not even going to go into the legal side of but needless to say always two nurses to sign independently for sometimes just half a bar of soap.
