This is a special Fax Alert from Kathleen K. Ryan, Esq., PFDA General Counsel regarding Inspections by the State Board of Funeral Directors
"It was recently brought to our attention that the Inspectors for the State Board have implemented some sort of computerized system for conducting inspections. The inspections are now completed visually, the inspector enter information in a "computer filed" and ultimately the funeral director is presented with a signature line without having the opportunity to view what was entered."
