FAQ Who should I inform/contact if someone dies at home? Depends on whether death was sudden or expected. If expected, the deceased will have been attended by his/her G.P recently. The first initial call should be made to this doctor who will be required to visit the home to confirm death has occurred. If calling the G.P out of hours, an alternative number may be given to contact a Locum doctor. The Locum doctor will visit to confirm death has occurred. Once death has been confirmed the funeral director should be called. If unexpected, the first call should be made to the deceased's G.P. who was attending during his or her last illness. The G.P. may advise that the family contact their nearest Garda Station, as the Gardai may wish to inform the Coroner. If contacting the G.P. out of hours normally a number for an out of hours/locum doctor will be given; once contacted they will arrange for a doctor to call to the home. The funeral director should be contacted at this stage. What is the normal procedure/process if someone dies in a hospital, hospice or nursing home ? Normally a doctor will be in attendance or called to confirm death. The doctor and/or staff will confirm to the family whether or not a post mortem examination will be required. In most instances, this will not be necessary and the family are free to telephone their funeral director to make funeral arrangements. If a post mortem is required is there likely to be a delay in organisation of the funeral arrangements ? Yes. When a post mortem examination is required, there would normally be a delay of 1-2 days. This may be extended if death occurs during a weekend or bank holiday. I will liaise with the hospital and Coroner and advise the family. What is a post mortem ? A post mortem (sometimes called an autopsy) is an examination carried out by a pathologist after a death when it is necessary to establish the medical cause of death. The majority of deaths do not require any post mortem because the medical cause of death can be certified by a doctor, who has been treating the deceased in the months prior to the death, i.e. a G.P. or hospital doctor. What deaths must be reported to the Coroner ? There is detailed information available on the Coroner website.
