When a Death Occurs
At Home or in a Nursing Home:
When someone dies the first contact should be with the doctor of the deceased. The doctor will then certify the death. If satisfied with the cause of death they will issue a cause of death certificate. After the doctor has certified you should contact us. We provide a 24hr on call service and we will arrange to bring your loved one into our care.
The person in charge of the ward will inform the patients affairs office at the hospital that the death has occurred. The staff will then liaise with the doctor who cared for the deceased during their stay in hospital. If satisfied the doctor will issue the cause of death certificate which will be left with the belongings of the deceased at the patients affairs office. Contact us and we will arrange to bring your loved one into our care.
A sudden or unexpected death:
When someone dies unexpectedly the coroner is involved. There are further tests to clarify the cause of death. This usually takes a week after which the paperwork is issued directly to the registrar for you to register. There could be an inquest which is normally opened and adjourned so that the funeral can take place. Contact us as soon as possible and we will liaise with the coroner and arrange to bring your loved one into our care.
