Styles and Sizes of Post Mortem Bags
A post mortem bag, also widely known as a body bag, cadaver pouch, or human remains pouch (HRP), is a non-porous bag well-designed to fit a human body. Post mortem bags are used to store corpses inside morgues and used for the transportation of human remains for their place of discovery to a funeral home or mortuary. As these bags come in different styles and sizes, you must explore the available ranges and choose what best suits your requirements.
- Currently, lightweight white post mortem bags have become popular and commonly used. It’s so because they are a lot easier to spot a piece of evidence that may have been scrambled from the body in transit on a white background. Even so, black post mortem bags are still in general use, and various other standard colours include blue, gray, and orange.
- Regardless of their color, post mortem bags are crafted from thick plastic and have a full-length zipper. Occasionally, the zipper runs straight down the middle. Alternatively, the path of the zipper may be J-shaped or D-shaped. Depending on the style and design, there are handles (two on each side) to facilitate lifting.
- In some post mortem bags, you can write information on the plastic surface of the bag using a marker pen. It usually happens when various bodies are being collected from a single place or at the mortuary before being stored in refrigerated cabinets.
- Some post mortem bags are designed with transparent label pockets as a vital part of the design to add a name-card.
