Mortician Job Description

A mortician is a person who prepares the dead for burial.

Morticians often handle the embalming and cleaning process of the deceased.

Embalming is the process of treating a body to delay decomposition.

Embalming is accomplished by removing the body's blood and replacing it with preservatives (sometimes formaldehyde).

The body's viscera are removed and cleaned, and organs and tissues are replaced.

Embalming may also include the insertion of special chemicals, such as calcium hydroxide or formaldehyde.
