Coroner’s Building Riddled with Problems

The Coroner’s Bureau building “should be replaced as soon as possible,” due to health and safety concerns, the county Grand Jury stated in a recent report. The layout of the facility ​— ​built in 1987 ​— ​makes for possible cross-contamination between the autopsy room and the rest of the building, the jury stated, adding that insufficient ventilation could circulate diseases and expose staff to formaldehyde. Also problematic, the jury continued, is the office’s lack of a testing protocol, including for tuberculosis and hepatitis.
