TITLE 13 DECEDENTS' ESTATES, GUARDIANSHIPS AND TRUSTS
Chapter 13.50. UNIFORM ANATOMICAL GIFT ACT
Sec. 13.50.016. Investigations by law enforcement and medical personnel.
(a) Law enforcement or medical personnel who respond to the scene of an accident or emergency involving the death of a person shall make a reasonable search for a document of gift or other information identifying the bearer as a donor or as an individual who has refused to make an anatomical gift. If the law enforcement or medical personnel know that the person executed a gift, they shall inform appropriate hospital personnel of the gift. Failure to make a reasonable search required under this subsection is not a basis for civil or criminal liability but may be the basis for appropriate disciplinary sanctions.
(b) The requirements of this section do not apply to law enforcement or medical personnel who respond to the scene of an accident or emergency in an area where all hospitals within a reasonable distance have been exempted under AS 13.50.014 (c) from the requirements of AS 13.50.014.
