The family of the deceased will have to take care of requesting the death certificate from the family doctor, where the immediate cause of death is certified.
Of particular importance is the compilation of the Istat form which summarizes the details of the deceased person and the causes of death.
If the death occurred at night or on a public holiday, the family will often have to call the on call Emergency Doctor ( Guardia Medica) It is good to know, however, that this doctor's assessment cannot replace that of the attending physician.
