Postmortem Care (Nursing)

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

A patient death is a difficult experience for everyone involved. However, by helping to maintain the dignity of a deceased patient with proper postmortem care, a nurse can guide the family and friends of the deceased through a difficult time.

In this course, you’ll learn about the nurse’s roles and responsibilities with respect to postmorten care, tips for a better family viewing experience, and what to do if the patient’s death is transitioned to a medical examiner. In the lattermost instance, there are important legal matters to be aware of, and these, too, will be covered in this course.
