Procedure[edit]

In the event of a death occurring in the home, a doctor should always be contacted. The doctor will confirm the date and time of death and fill out the death certificate (Todesbescheinigung). If death takes place in a hospital, the hospital will arrange for the death certificate to be completed. Only if there are any suspicious circumstances should the police be called.
