    When a patient/resident dies, the registered nurse has a duty to inform the doctor who has been treating them immediately. In the event of expected death, the doctor may pre-arrange to be informed at another time.

    Confirmation or verification of death is defined as deciding whether a person is actually deceased. Verification of death can be undertaken by a competent registered nurse in line with their employer’s policies to determine local agreements about the circumstances in which this can be done.  In contrast, certification of death is done by a registered medical practitioner.
