Parkview Community Hospital Complaint - My father's death
RIVERSIDE -- My father just passed away October 7, 2011, which was a Friday.
Upon leaving the ICU we were stopped by staff asking us to sign the release for the funeral home, so they would be authorized to pick up my father. We were assured everything would be handled from that point on by the hospital staff.
Although saddened by his passing we at least felt a sense of relief that over the weekend things would be handled.
Come to find out by the following Tuesday, 5 days later, my dad's body was still in the morgue at Parkview!
No one called the funeral home for pickup. They left him in there like a dead plant. Absolutely unacceptable and extremely disrepectable!
Anyone know what I can do about this to take it a step further?
Calls have gone unreturned from the staff at the hospital.
