6. I did my medical elective in a morgue in Kathmandu, Nepal. I saw a woman’s head brought in in a cardboard box after her husband had beheaded her. They found the rest of her body the next day.
7. The place I work has a small area in the fridge to place newborns. Its up in the corner on a little shelf. Normally there is a clear plastic bin with a few blankets in it. The infants are usually extremely premature so its hard to notice them bundled up.
When someone brings a body to the morgue a sheet is supposed to be filled out. Someone brought an infant and didn’t fill the sheet out. Over the next several months it started to smell extremely bad. The entire area was cleaned out but the smell remained. It wasn’t until someone checked the bin that they found a decomposed infant.
I am so glad I didn’t have to see it, but knowing what it smells like makes me sick
