This is technical work in the conduct of autopsies and related forensic procedures for the County Medical Examiner. Employees in this class are responsible for performing a variety of technical tasks in assisting medical examiners in the conduct of autopsies and related diagnostic analyses to determine cause of death. Emphasis of the work is on completion of a large volume of gross autopsy procedures and related necrodactylographic and cytology-histology techniques. Duties include assisting medical examiners during gross autopsies and in completing forensic procedures including fingerprinting, palm printing, x-ray, photography and may include the embalming of bodies of indigent residents. Employees experience hazardous and difficult working conditions since bodies are received for autopsy where pathogens may be present and not diagnosed, and where cadavers may be in decomposed, mutilated, burned or other conditions due to the nature of the terminal episode. Incumbents must exercise care since medical examiners are legally and medically responsible for determination as to cause of death and employees closely assist the medical staff in these determinations. Supervision is received from medical and technical superiors who review work for quality of results.
