  1. I had to stop listening, since within the first 5 minutes, some information was completely wrong. Having worked Hospice for 5 of 15 years in Nursing, I have followed a strict protocol for preparing a deceased person for transportation, usually the funeral home. They are NOT thrown around like furniture. They are not treated like trash.They ARE treated like a person. No, the head is NOT just wrapped in a sheet.Every facility has "shroud" packs. It will contain gloves, a variety of bandages and coverings, soap, and cloths to clean and a shroud {not a sheet}. Next, you give the person a bed bath. Clean away blood, cover wounds and punctures, and remove IV's and other tubes (unless patient is slated for autopsy, then they must remain in place, but clean them off as well). Remember that sphincters relax and there will be drainage in the groin and buttocks areas—provide some absorbent pads. If the patient wore dentures and they are available, put them in. Comb their hair. The last step is to move them to the stretcher or morgue cart,where you will wrap the person snugly in the shroud. Make absolutely sure all identifying tags are correct and in place. One tag goes on the chest, one on the big toe or ankle. Make sure the information matches. Check your paperwork and documentation one last time. Your last duty is to transport the person to the facility's morgue.
    IF anyone treats the person, as described by the person speaking, that IS automatic grounds for dismissal in most, if not all medical facilities. To say a sick person or someone who has died is just a way for hospitals, doctors, Big Pharma and Funeral homes to make money, is appalling. Anyone who feels this way should never be allowed to work in the healthcare field.

    1. Thanks for your reply! Yeah, the only time I've ever heard of bodies being mistreated like that was from this podcast guest. I try to remain skeptical when I hear things like that. I'll be sure to address this in another podcast for sure. This is one of the reasons I love doing this podcast... there's a lot of misinformation out there and I think it's our responsibility to get to the truth. I'd love to have you on the podcast for an interview to talk about some of your experiences in hospice and nursing. Of course if you wish to remain anonymous I completely understand!
