What do I do when death occurs?
If death occurs in a hospital, nursing home or hospice care center, the nurses will ask you what funeral home you have chosen to take care of the deceased. The nurse will then call the funeral home and give us the necessary vital statistic information. We are on call 24 hours 7 days a week and as soon as the body has been released we will immediately leave to pick up the deceased to take back to our funeral home.
If death occurs at home without hospice/doctor care, call 911 and the county coroner will make arrangements to pick up the deceased and take to the morgue.
