The "Journal of Punjab Academy of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology" is the official publication of the Punjab Academy of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, published since 2001. Dr. R. K. Gorea writes "Mortuary is one such place in our country which is the most neglected site of the hospital usually at most of the places". Who is to be blamed? We have to do some introspection. The most important thing in my mind come that probably we have never asked our hospital authorities to provide us within trained and educated assistants. At most of the place we rely mostly on the untrained illiterate peons or sweeper. This is the scenario which needs to be changed. At least forensically trained nurses or pharmacist should be employed in the mortuaries and if they are not able we should train them. We should not lag behind and should try to implement the new ideas and make our mortuaries like operation theatre to protect ourselves, our staff and public from highly communication diseases like AIDS, hepatitis, etc.
