Abstract

Jane Rowlands-Mellor describes how the introduction of a service allowing the on-site registration of deaths has reduced the number of errors and improved care for bereaved relatives

Summary

The process of registering deaths can be complicated and time consuming, and often adds to bereaved families' stress. The introduction of an on-site registrar's office at one hospital has reduced some of the problems associated with the registration of deaths, such as delays or administration errors, and has ensured that families can receive death certificates and register deaths in a single location.
