Grave Words: Notifying Survivors About Sudden,
Unexpected Deaths

Kenneth V. Iverson, Alfred J. Bollet


Sudden, unexpected death notification stresses everyone involved. Grave Words: Notifying Survivors about Sudden, Unexpected Deaths provides a way to ease the pain a little - for notifier and survivor alike. It explains, step by step, how to relate tragic news to survivors by providing true-life case studies, in-depth information, and protocols tailored to a variety of situations. Protocols for death notification by physicians, nurses, emergency medical services personnel, chaplains, medical examiners or coroners, and police officers are detailed in the book. Also included are bereavement resources and support groups, a death-notification course outline, police and military in-line-of-duty notification protocols, and airline disaster protocols.
