VIDEO: Will Doctors Still Save My Life if I'm a Registered Donor?
Many people wonder: will doctors still save my life if I'm a registered organ, eye and tissue donor? The first priority of a medical professional is to save lives when sick or injured people come to the hospital. Organ and tissue donation isn't even considered or discussed until after death is declared or a family has decided to remove ventilated support. In fact, doctors and nurses involved in a person's care before death are not involved in the recovery or transplantation of donated organs, corneas or tissues.
