Care after death not only incorporates the personal care of the deceased, but also takes into consideration the cultural, religious and spiritual needs of the patient and family while being mindful of the legal requirements and adhering to local policies and guidelines. It is therefore imperative that the nurse carrying out this procedure is not only equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience, but also performs this duty of care with sensitivity, empathy and compassion, while preserving the patient's dignity.
