Abstract
Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is an infectious, progressive, degenerative neurological disorder. Unique CJD Precautions must be adhered to as the infectious agent is difficult to destroy. A regional group in Hamilton-Burlington Ontario developed CJD guidelines based on critical review of the current evidence of transmission in a Canadian healthcare environment, current published standards of practice in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia; and principles of laboratory and patient care safety as well as expert opinion.

Abstract
Facts and evidence have been negated or lost by the inexperience of health care professionals who are not cognizant of the legal requirements concerning potential criminal cases. In the perioperative setting, policy and procedure should provide guidelines for potential criminal cases based on the key concepts and principles of forensic science. Potential forensic cases and traumatic injuries are not limited to major health care centres. All hospitals should have policies and procedures which outline: traumatic injuries/death, staff responsibilities, details of collecting evidence, documentation, chain of custody. The procedure should also include care of victims, suspected perpetrators as well as family/persons accompanying patient.
