[Histonet] Decedents from Nursing Homes

From:"O'Brien, Sue"

I was wondering how other hospitals handled receiving decedents from nursing
homes. These are cases where the patient died at the nursing home, but there
is a delay anticipated in the decedent being transferred to a Funeral Home.
Currently, those cases are coming to the hospital morgue (for
refrigeration). These are not Medical Examiner cases. Do other hospitals
charge for this type of service? Would anyone be willing to share their
policies with me? Thank-you,
