Was told by a diff. doctor that is kidney failure. Yes, he had organ failure because he died in hospice and he was in a coma.

death certificate

A: File a complaint with the state Dept. of Health, Vital Statistics division. The death certificate was supposed to be signed by the doctor within 24 hours.

I have a death certificate (dated 1890) where cause of death is ENPSIPLAS. What does this mean?

A: Is it really bad handwriting? The only things I can think of which may look similar are Emphysemia, Encephalitis, Endocarditis, Epistaxis or even Erysipelas. Erysipelas is a contagious skin disease which in old times could be fatal. It could be that...?

Why would a Dr. refuse to sign a death certificate ?

A: sounds like they are afraid of being sued i would call a personal injury lawer...the first 30 minutes is always free you will have to ask the doctors for their reasons. there is no way to speculate. First off, my condolences. Secondly, depending on the state (like here in Utah), only an attending physician is required to sign. In some states, the primary Dr. IS required, but may exempt themselves for legal reasons (didn''t see the patient, disagree with diagnosis, etc). they either don''t agree or do not want to be held responsable Did your dad pass away at home or was he in the hospital at the time? I do understand that this is difficult for you. I worked as a EMT for 8 years. Sometime when someone passes away, even if they were carried to the hospital, the doctor will have the coroner to...

Birth/death certificate Name Changes-Missouri

A: Dear Megan I don"t think his name on your birth certificate has any importance whatsoever except that you would be his presumptive heir. If you know who your real father is, and he is agreeable, I believe you would have to simply fill out a form correcting the certificate. Since you get a free name change when you marry, you could drop his name from your married name. Since I am not licensed to practice in your state, I would suggest you check with a local lawyer to see if there are any other requirements. Congratulations on your wedding, life goes on....
