Where Do Bodies Go After Hospice?

Where Do Bodies Go After Hospice?

When someone dies in hospice, the hospice nurse verifies the death, completes the appropriate legal papers to acquire a death certificate, and notifies the hospice’s medical director.

The mortuary arrives to pick up the body when the family is ready. For example, suppose a loved one dies in a hospital. In that case, their body will be kept at the hospital morgue until the family arranges to pick it up.
