When a patient dies he/she is taken to the morgue. 24 hours later, when the doctor has signed the death certificate, the family can take the body to the cemetery or to the funerary house. If the death was due to a car accident or due to an uncertain cause, the body is taken to the Forensic Anatomical Institute (School of Medicine) so that the autopsy can be performed.
Apart from the legal autopsies which are obliged by law, there are clinical autopsies which try to determine the precise nature of the disease and its causes. In these cases, the doctor must ask permission to the family before performing the autopsy.
