[Histonet] release of tissues back to patient

We had a question come up regarding giving patient's back their placentas (patient's request) after delivery.  Our general rule is not to return tissues, except for religious reasons.  We are now trying to come up with a concrete SOP for (or not) returning tissues.  I was curious what other institutions are doing in regards to this topic.  I know laws vary by location but I am looking for a general idea.
Thank you in advance,
