Exercise 7.8 In January, University hospital had 23 inpatient deaths, 8 of which were autopsied. Of the 23 deaths, two were coroner’s cases — one of which was autopsied by the hospital pathologist (included in the 8 autopsies), and one was removed to be autopsied by the coroner. In addition, the following cases were brought to the hospital to be autopsied: a former inpatient who died in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) a month after discharge from the hospital; a child known to have congenital heart disease who died in the ESD; one patient who died in the outpatient department (OPD) while he was getting lab work performed and a former inpatient who died at home while under the hospital’s home care department (HHCD).
