In certain situations, the coroner's office may need to be called. This is a routine procedure and should not cause concern. If the coroner is contacted, they will come to the place of death and discuss release. Once they have given their authorization, we can take your loved one into our care.
The deceased's next of kin should be notified as they will have to take part in the arrangement process, as should any family members that you feel should be included. It's a good idea to also communicate with palliative care services or anyone else that should be advised.
