Organ Quizzes & Trivia

Thanks to research and technology, we have the option to donate our organs for healing our loved ones. This process involves removing an organ from one person and putting it in another and it continues to function. Find out by taking this quiz.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Elderly people are not suitable candidates for donation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Organs have been donated from people over ninety five years of age, and as a result, lives have been saved. While some bone and tissue from elderly donors may be inappropriate for transplantation, donation for medical research may be an option that your clients may consider.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    People who do not document or register their wishes to donate probably didn’t want to donate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Just as we do not presume that a person who failed to draft an advance directive didn’t care about his treatment, we cannot presume that silence on the donation option is tantamount to a “no”. Many people choose to leave the decision to a family member, with the tacit understanding that “I will not be around to care anyway”. While this may not be a good result for the family member, it is a perfectly valid option for the client, and one which they exercise by doing nothing.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    In most states, regardless of the deceased patient’s organ donor card, donor registry or advance directive, the families consent is still required.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In most states, the documented wishes of the deceased may not be revoked by any other person. Best practices include notification of the family, to answer questions, coordinate funeral arrangements and provide long term support, bereavement counseling and recognition.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Social Workers should not counsel people about the donation option when discussing end of life decisions with clients.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False, for the most part. Social Workers who endeavor to counsel individuals on end of life care face an increasing need to be able to deliver or find accurate information on donation, to share with clients. Doing so facilitates the planning, dying and bereavement processes. However, if a Social Worker is a purveyor of any of the Myths described here, perhaps you should direct your client to a better source of information, such as a local organ or tissue procurement organization!

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Health care proxies, agents and holders of a durable power of attorney may not make post-mortem decisions concerning donation, because the power of attorney dies when the patient dies.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The answer is, False, in most states. But if you got this wrong, you can be forgiven, because the law allowing for health care agents to make donation decisions is new to most states. For a list of states which have enacted the new Uniform Anatomical Gift Act, and a discussion of its provisions, see www.anatomicalgift.org.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The costs of donation and recovery come out of the deceased person’s estate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This is not and has never been the case. There is no charge to a donor’s estate or family.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Most people are uncomfortable with the idea of anatomical donation, for themselves or their loved ones, and it is too sensitive to bring up.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This is what people used to say about death, and pain. If people are to be empowered, they need to know the facts. Facts fight fear.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Understanding and facilitating anatomical gifts is not a core element of end-of-life and bereavement care.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. True
    B. False
    Explanation
    Please take the time to read the attached chapters from Reg Green, a donor father who has devoted his recent years to the destruction of myths.
