The National Organ Transplant Act
(NOTA) Established the Organ Procurement and Transplant
Network (OPTN) to determine who is alloted a transplant
and the Act also makes it illegal to buy or sell
human organs or tissues intended for transplant.
If you want to be
an organ donor, it is best to keep your donor card with
you. If there is a driver's license or personal identification
indicating the same, that can also be used to inform the
hospital or trauma center of your wish.
