2nd Edition of Care After Death: Registered Nurse Verification of Expected Adult Death (RNVoEAD) guidance

The aim of this guideline and the accompanying competency assessment tool is to provide a framework for the timely verification of expected adult deaths by experienced (assessed as competent) registered nurses. It will enable staff to care appropriately for the deceased, in line with local policy, and minimise distress for families and carers following an expected death at any time of the day / night / week. It is in line with the person and family centred care recommended in national documents.
