Funeral Home Policies and Procedures Procedure for Accepting Bodies
The funeral home receives bodies for preservation from our own wards, as well as homes and other facilities. To accommodate a body from home, the funeral home must first receive a Notification of Death from the community registration agent (assistant chief) or from the National Police Occurrence Book (OB), which can be accessed by all police jurisdictions.
- The Notification of Death for bodies brought from home is to be issued by the community registration agent (assistant chief).
- If a body comes from another medical facility, that facility must provide the Notification of Death.
- There is one exception. We can issue a Notification of Death for a body coming from another facility when our funeral home conducts the postmortem.
Procedures for Releasing Bodies
Before a body can be released from the funeral home, the Outpatient department must clear the body and the Records Office must issue a Burial Permit.
Our funeral home was made possible by donations from Ken Goldenberg’s People Helping People Foundation and the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, USA.
