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 brochure is an effective tool to meet the immediate needs of bereaved individuals and provide them anticipatory guidance. It covers topics such as next steps, sharing the news with others, honoring the one who has died, and additional support. The back page of the brochure provides a place for healthcare providers to record detailed information for the bereaved (e.g., the time of death; names of professionals who cared for the patient; decisions about organ donation, autopsy, and mortuary services).
