If a Death Has Occurred
Client Family Survey
Since the majority of deaths occur in an organized health care institution such as hospitals and nursing homes, the attending staff will likely provide you with some preliminary information. If the death occurs at home, please notify the attending physician or registered nurse (if the death was unexpected or if there are any irregular circumstances, phone the Police immediately). If the deceased was under hospice care at home, hospice should have given you some basic information and guidelines to follow. Regardless of the circumstances leading up to a death, our guideline will help you along the way.
