Biohazard cleanup


Certain deaths may result in blood or biological tissue or fluids remaining at the scene of an injury or death.   The Medical Examiner-Coroner is not responsible for nor does it provide cleaning services to these locations.  Families, landlords and property owners are advised to contract with a State Registered Trauma Scene Practitioner for biohazard cleaning. 

Here is a link to the California State Registered Trauma Scene Practitioner List.   Additional information regarding trauma scene cleanup is available on the California Department of Public Health website.
