Aim and the benefit of the Patient Safety Practice
 
Errors in identification of the corpse can occur in all the phases of the mortuary police and can cover both the corpse of the hospitalized patients and those coming from outside the hospital setting. It is therefore necessary to make the process of corpse identification safer by following a procedure that involves the use of a wristband (which is the same for the hospitalized patients, while it is a specific bracelet placed on the corpses coming from outside the hospital setting).
Description of the Patient Safety Practice
 
Specific guidelines, including requirements for a correct identification of corpses, were developed. To this end, ID bracelets were bought and indications for their application given to healthcare workers.
Systematic verification of data reported on the wristband and documentation accompanying the corpse is carried out (including verification of ID card)
Attachment of relevant written information and/or photos, as appropriate
