dc.description.abstractA survey of organ procurement programs and district attorneys' offices in every state and the District of Columbia was conducted to determine how effective donor cards were in obtaining organs for transplantation. The authors discovered that, although all jurisdictions have adopted some form of the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act and most have provisions for donor documentation on driver's licenses, there has been no substantial increase in the organ supply. Organ procurement appears to be hampered by current methods of card distribution, problems with maintaining referral networks, and uncertainties about the legal status of donor cards which have led hospitals to add a requirement for next-of-kin consent.
