Hospitals in Victoria, Australia, are seeing an increase in organ donations and this increase is putting pressure on services, according to Dr. Helen Opdam, the state's medical director of organ and tissue donation. The number of organ donations has risen from an average of 46 annually between 2000 and 2007 to 98. Andrew Way, chief executive at Alfred Hospital, said more hiring and facilities are needed to manage the increase in donations.
