Last offices neglected in over half of hospital deaths


when i was a nurse i know here i go again. When a patient passed away ,i the nurse with one other would provide the patient with a final bed bath ,we also had the duty of packing all open areas ie the nose the anus and tie of the penis with gauze bandage ,then and only then the patient was covered with a clean sheet and the patient was taken down to the mortuary. It was not a pleasant procedure but a necessary final act as a nurse to perform or the patient in her care.
