If the coroner determines that a drug overdose is the cause of death of a person, the coroner may provide a notice of the death to the state medical board, board of nursing, or state dental board. The coroner may include in the notice any information relating to the drug that resulted in the overdose, including whether it was obtained by prescription and, if so, the name of the individual who prescribed it.
