I'm a Nurse Manager at a rest home/hospital level aged care facility. We are trying to figure out the best way to notify residents of a death in the facility. We have many ideas but it is hard to know what is best. The only time everyone is together is at mealtimes but it seems wrong to announce a death and have a time of reflection right before everybody is about to have a meal. What do other places do?
