India: New SOPS For Organ Transplants — Rules Get Strict, Family Pictures of Donors, Recipients To Be Verified
from The Indian Express
The final draft of the Standard Operating Procedure of live organ transplants has laid down stringent norms for transplants in the state, including verification of the family photos of donors and recipients, and photographs of the operating doctor to be clicked with patients just before the surgery. The SOP is set to be submitted to the advisory committee, from where it will go to Health Minister Deepak Sawant. Once the minister's nod is in, Maharashtra will become one of the few states in India to lay down strict transplant rules.
