With Deepest Sympathy
When families leave your facility after the death of a loved one, they may have difficulty remembering details and important information. This pamphlet provides a place to record detailed information for them: the time of death, decisions about organ donation, autopsy and funeral homes. There is space for the names of staff who cared for the patient, and for the name and phone number of a contact person if the family has questions. Inside, there is an overview of next steps the family will face. This includes information about funeral services, the grief process and grief support resources. This pamphlet is an inexpensive and effective tool in meeting the immediate needs of bereaved families and provides them anticipatory guidance.
