|2||Discuss with family & Decide:
The decision to pledge your Organ is very personal, and probably one of the most significant decisions of your life. You could choose to pledge specific or all Organs. The choice is entirely yours. You will be required to fill up your details in the Organ Pledge Form and indicate your wishes.
However, it is extremely important to discuss your decision with family or next of kin.
The reason why this is so important is that in case of an emergency or an untoward incident, your family will be the first to be contacted. Only after seeking their permission can the doctors go ahead with retrieving your organs. If your family is aware of your decision, your wishes will be carried out the way you would have liked.
In the past when the families have not been aware and needed to be counseled on the wishes of their deceased relative, a lot of precious time is lost and sometimes the opportunity to donate is gone. In Organ donation, time is of prime importance. It is essential for the organs or tissues to be removed as soon as possible after the event of death, else they become unusable. This is why we urge you to please discuss this decision with your family.
If you’ve decided that you want to donate your organs after death, it is important that you register your decision by pledging your organs now!
