If someone has passed away, or death is imminent, here’s what to do first.
When a Death Has Occurred
If a passing has occurred at a hospital, nursing home, or hospice, they can lead you through the proper steps and will begin to complete the death certificate. If the death has occurred at home, call 911 first to report it.
