In brief: Be persistent

I have been as guilty as most other pathologists in being slow to sign out autopsies -- there seems like there's always something more pressing.
If the family requested the autopsy, it should be ready in a month or two. If the law is involved, the next of kin can usually get the report unless it's a homicide.
