My mom passed away in March at her assisted living facility. She did not show any signs of the Corona virus, so it appeared to be something unexpected and sudden. (She looked as if she had been sleeping in her chair.) It was a shock to all of us as she had just had 1 month prior in the hospital a good EKG . Of course we were unable to see her with visitor restrictions which just added to the shock of things.
We were told were happened, that it appeared she likely had passed for some time before being found. We were told the medics confirmed with an EKG that she had passed. My family felt that they would like a report/incident report of some kind just to have closure. Aside from a verbal description from multiple parties I have been unable to get such a thing. Is there a form which would have a step by step description of what happened or does such a thing not exist? Is it more typical to just get the phone calls, etc?
Everyone has been very polite and empathetic but my request for the report has not been responded to. I know it is a very challenging time but a document would have been comforting. Of course I did get the death certificate which of course is what the doctor concluded via the phone. (He did not return my call after she passed and the police department said that due to HIPA laws it is not something they simply send out.)
Any thoughts about this?
