I recently had a job interview
at a long term care facility and had to complete a written quiz. One of the questions on the quiz was how long can the resident's body stay in bed after they die. In my experience so far, I had a resident pass away on the day shift, late morning if I could recall correctly. family did not see the body (stated they weren't going to be there), funeral home was called. Informed by day shift nurse that funeral home would come at around 1530 to 1600 to pick up the body.
Another question that I have from the quiz is how much time does the family member have to pick up the resident's belongings after the resident dies?
