I'd suggest you check with your local coroner, or state statutes regarding fetal demise.
There are laws that govern at what gestational age a fetus can be considered a surgical specimen and when it must go to a funeral home.
If you do not already have policies check with labor and delivery or your institutions legal department.

I am searching for a regulation referencing proper disposal of the fetus.
Does anyone know is there a written policy?
