Special Arrangements Away From Home
|If death occurs away from home, we can arrange all of the details for you in any location on the continent and around the world. In most instances, we can act as your agent to see that all your wishes are carried out. There is no need for you to make a long trip and deal with strangers.|
We can also make the necessary arrangements for burial in a distant city. There is no need for you to travel to that city for the purpose of handling the details. Upon your arrival for the burial, you'll find that everything is in order. If you cannot be present, you can be sure that your instructions will be followed.
We recommend that, should you choose a funeral home away from Western Pennsylvania, choose one with membership to the National Selected Morticians.
Membership to these organizations is by invitation only and only the "best of the best" may join.
With membership to the National Selected Morticians, you are nationally guaranteed satisfaction. No other funeral organization can provide that. In fact, we are honored to be a member of the National Selected Morticians. For your convenience, we have enclosed the code of ethics which provide the foundation for operation of all National Selected Mortician members (including Turner-Myers Funeral Home).
The NSM Code of Good Funeral Practice
As funeral directors, our calling imposes upon us special responsibilites to those we serve and to the public at large. An important obligation is to inform the public so that everyone can make knowledgeable decisions about funerals and funeral directors.
In acceptance of our responsibilities, and as a condition of our membership in National Selected Morticians, we affirm the following standards of good funeral practice and hereby pledge:
To provide the public with information about funerals, including prices, and about functions, services and responsibilities of funeral directors.
To afford a continuing opportunity to all persons to discuss or arrange funerals in advance.
To make funerals available in as wide a range of price categories as necessary to meet the need of all segments of the community, and affirmatively to extend to everyone the right of inspecting and freely considering all of them.
To quote conspicuously in writing the charges for every funeral offered and to identify clearly the prices for the services, facilities, equipment and merchandise included in such quotations.
To furnish each family at the time funeral arrangements are made, a written memorandum of charges and to make no additional charge without the approval of the purchaser.
To make no representation, written or oral, which may be false or misleading, and to apply a standard of total honesty in all dealings.
To respect all faiths, creeds and customs and to give full effect to the role of the clergy.
To maintain a qualified and competent staff, complete facilities and suitable equipment required for comprehensive funeral service.
To assure those we serve the right of personal choice and decision in making funeral arrangements.
To be responsive to the needs of the poor serving them within their means.
To comply fully with the requirements of the FTC Trade Regulation Rule on Funeral Practices.
We pledge to conduct ourselves in every way and at all times in such a manner as to deserve the public trust, and to place a copy of this Code of Good Funeral Practice in the possession of a representative of all parties with whom we arrange funerals.
Members of the National Selected Morticians also subscribe to the Pre-Planning Statement on Ethics as adopted by the NSM Board of Directors.
