Is this a practice at any of your facilities? I know it's pretty common in NICU and L&D as part of a remembrance package, but what about in your pediatric facilities?
We had a patient pass away recently and after I had gotten him washed, removed the tubes and lines, combed his hair, dressed him and wrapped him in a blanket, he looked better than he had in months. I thought it might be a good idea to take a picture in case the family wanted one for later, but I wasn't sure if we had a policy for this or if I could get in trouble, since patient photos are a big issue of privacy.
We did do handprints and footprints in ink for the parents to take with them, and they had family photos taken a month or two before as part of one of our "pictures of hope" programs for kids with cancer. I'm just curious what you do at your facility in regard to photos of a child after he or she has passed.
