The mortuary is the most neglected and ignored place in almost all the peripheral hospitals as well as medical colleges. It is not having even basic facilities for the departed souls, public and officials working there. It is a well known fact that from the overall expenditure of any hospital, a very minute share is spent on the autopsy facility; it being considered a necessary evil. Consequently, the overall environment in a mortuary is depressing and gloomy; this situation is further compounded by administrative apathy towards medico-legal work as a whole. Despite these setbacks, a ray of hope emerges from judicial judgments on this issue. Keeping in view these points along with judicially pushed compulsion on the authorities to streamline and improve mortuaries, we present a lay out for the ideal mortuary complex designed for medical colleges and peripheral hospitals.
