Coroners are required by law to report the information pertaining to a SIDS death within 24 hours after the gross autopsy. The coroner should report the death to the health department of residence. The Coroner should also complete a Coroner Notification Card CDPH 4411 (7/07) and send it to the California SIDS Program. For more information or to request forms, please contact the California SIDS Program. ?
