I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

The doctor finally signed the death certificate! It was on the fax machine Wednesday morning. I faxed it to the state, then entered it into the system once I had access. The last time we needed a rush cremation approval, I had faxed the certificate to the Medical Examiner with a note explaining what I needed. They told me next time I should fax the Death Record Review sheet, so I printed it out and did just that. Three hours go by without a word. I called down there and was told I had to wait for the record to make its way through the system. That worried me, because even though I faxed it to the state first thing that morning, they could take up to 24 hours to review it and forward it to the Medical Examiner. Thankfully, I had approval just after lunch, and the cremation was accomplished that same day. Next time I will be more mindful of my time frames, but I honestly did not expect the doctor to take three and a half days to sign the certificate.
