    What kinds of things do you need to know?
    The mechanics of the actual practices will vary from country to country, and (I would imagine) from state to state - perhaps even institution to institution.
    Precautions are universal - the same as for living patients.
    Zane Robinson Wolf, dean of nursing at LaSalle, has written a really interesting book which includes a large section of post-mortem nursing care - it's called "Nurses' work - the sacred and the profane"
    Hope that helps a little
