Oh come on, its the bible belt... Low standards of education... Thats too easy of a job for you to poke fun at... do something harder..
Moral of the story. Avoid those states like the plague. If you enjoy low cost of living, its a easy place to retire in; and if you wonder why it has low cost of living...

I live in Georgia and can confirm the coroner is elected. I was shocked when I first learned this. I was far more shocked when I learned that a close family member had actually been a coroner in the past, despite a complete lack of medical training. They're family, but... they really shouldn't have been doing something like that. They've portrayed it as not much more than being someone who had to declare a person dead and what was to be done. Granted, they also had to follow rules about what happened to the body, especially concerning when an autopsy must be performed. They say that they'd been hounded by families wanting the remains of a loved one returned immediately that were enraged when told that the situation required, by nature of the scenario, an autopsy. I'd like to think they did well in the position, but you can't substitute proper training...

When my little brother died, we knew why- he died in the throes of a status grande mal seizure. But as he was on several experimental meds and his brain damage was the result of a malpractice, he had to have a full autopsy. We got his remains less than 2 weeks later, in time for the funeral, but it was *18 MONTHS* before the autopsy results were released. After hearing the woman’s story of struggling due to not getting life insurance funds in a timely fashion, I wonder if my parents also had to wait and thus pay for those massive hospital bills on their own- I’m betting they did.

You should probably feed your dog better dog food or at least "some" dog food so he doesn't eat the organs of people like Hannibal Lecter! Next your dog will demand fava beans!

Disappointing economics. Life expectancy is 70+ years. We're looking at $200–$300 per capita over a normal lifetime, to investigate a small fractions of deaths. Not huge, but not insignificant, either.

i think in the American south the system is basically a trailer with a floor-drain in it. Whenever they get a body the Sherif/mayor/treasurer/beet farmer/coroner just goes in there and pins a post-it note to the body that says "some nigger did it".

remember how the sheriffs in Making a Murderer blocked the coroner from looking at Theresa Halbach's remains? And they threatened her when she told them it was law to let the coroner see any body found by the police.

In high school, I had a classmate whose dad was the state medical examiner (New Hampshire). He mentioned that people were upset that he was the highest paid state employee (as opposed to a college football coach, I guess). His reply was that in his role, he was a medical doctor, lawyer, and expert witness rolled into one.

kamenkewl - 15 gün önce
as a well timed related story, apparently a coroners office was shut down after the workers there were found to be using the bodies for arts and crafts ala human centipede or dr. frankenstein. they described finding things like "a metal bucket filled with male genitals" or "multiple women's faces sewn onto one head"
so yeah, if your coroners office seems too cheap to be true, it probably is.

The most dangerous part for those institutions is probably the vicious cycle that can occu: they are underfunded so they perform worse therefore they get a bad image which results in them getting less funding.

Does anyone else find John Oliver painfully unfunny and self congratulatory?
I put up with him in these videos because the subject matter is always so interesting. But they would actually be better without the awkward jokes and forced banter, and just delivered as straight editorial pieces. I respect his work ethic and hustle to get his own mainstream US talk show but he really reminds me of someone who got there on grit and determination and not comedic talent. He is very cringe worthy.
Just wondered how everyone else feels about him. Plus, I am british if that counts for anything, haha

This Georgia coroner has a side job of paranormal investigator. She wrongly blamed a death on natural causes when there was blood found everywhere in the apartment of a dead man. The funeral home employee found the stab wounds in the neck of the dead man.

Was watching a program of a true crime. The coroner stated that the person died of a heart attack. The undertaker pointed out the bullet in the back of the head of the corpse. Do you notice that all these bad examples are all in the Republican states??

I think the fundamental problem with forensic pathologist shortage is that to get into medical school, you have to be able to say, "I love working with people, I want to take care of their health and care about people's well being. I want to save lives! Hurray healthcare!"
It's kind of the opposite job description of a forensic pathologist.
Also, after getting your undergraduate degree, you need to finish 4 years of med school with $300k+ debt, 4-5 years of residency (starting salary is usually $50k) then you finally get to work at your dream median salary of $176k...
Or you could be a pediatrician or family doctor for only 3 years of residency for the same amount of base salary.
It would seems like 1-2 years isn't much.
But it is. When you know what it's like to be a resident who is immensely overworked and underpaid. Especially after you've been in school for as long as you have and the interest is piling up on that $300k principle.
I would suggest state schools to make a completely new degree. Go the anatomy route, get a master's or PhD. Get education paid for. There will probably be more people who can actually make it through without having to deal with the cut throat process of getting into medical school and trying to compete with the students trying to neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, interventional radiologists and dermatologists. And without all the debt associated with med school.

Well other than the Kardashian's supreme accomplishments the latest shark attacks "in less than a foot of water," and how many people are waiting in line for the next I phone but wouldn't bother waking into an empty polling location on election day and maybe casting a vote.
