When a Loved One Passes On at Home

Home may be a place where patients choose to spend their final days of life. When a loved one passes on at home, our doctors do home visits to help families issue Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD) for individuals who pass on due to known and natural causes.

What is a CCOD?

A Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD) is obtained from a certified doctor.

Doctors can only issue a CCOD when the cause of death is known and natural. If the cause is of death is unnatural, the body shall be handed over to the police for further investigation.

Family members are required to register the death within 24 hours.

What is a CCOD needed for?

A CCOD is needed for the following:

– Place an obituary in the newspaper
– Engage a funeral director
– Make arrangements for cremation or burial
