What to do when the death occurs?

FIRST CALL

Your first phone call about the death will depend on which of the following scenarios you find yourself in.

IF YOUR LOVED ONE PASSES AWAY UNATTENDED BY A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL

OR IS FOUND...

Contact your local Police or Sheriff’s department by dialing 911, and request an officer to pronounce the time of death.

In these cases, the officer will contact the County Medical

Examiner and they may choose to do an investigation if the cause of death is suspicious or traumatic in nature.

In either case, you or the officer can contact us at 708-390-8550 and

we will coordinate with the Medical Examiner.

IF YOUR LOVED ONE PASSES AWAY UNDER HOSPICE, NURSING HOME, OR HOSPITAL CARE...

If the nurse isn't present at the time of death, call him/her and ask them to come to the location to confirm that your loved one has passed away. When the death is confirmed, ask the nurse to call us for removal at 708-390-8550.
