State Cutbacks Limit Funeral Home Inspections

| Nov 22, 2017 | Funeral |

Reduction in state budgets prevent proper inspection of funeral homes.

The inspection of a Flint, MI funeral home that led to finding 10 decomposing bodies may not be an insolated case, according to ABC News in “Funeral home horrors put spotlight on spotty US regulation.”

Funeral homes in many states have similar issues.

Some funeral directors feel the problem is that there isn’t a uniform standard for inspecting funeral homes.

Some states do not require inspections at all, until a complaint is filed.

More inspections would help the problem, since regulators would discover problems sooner. However, many state budgets do not allow for hiring the increased number of inspectors that would be required.
