What Happens After An Unattended Death
The death of a loved one is difficult to cope with, but what happens when they die while alone? What do you do after an unattended death? If this has happened to you or someone close to you, continue reading this blog to know what happens next.
When an unattended death occurs, it can be hard not to panic. You might feel like there’s no way out of this situation, and that is totally normal. If you have already dialed 911 and authorities are on their way, the next step is to contact a biohazard cleaning company to do the rest of the work.
Here are some steps we take to make sure everything goes smoothly during this difficult time.
Prepare The Area
Before starting the process, the area that will be cleaned must be secured and separated from the rest of the property. This is to ensure that no one is at risk while the decontamination process begins and that no harmful contaminants go in and out of the scene.
At USA Bio Care, we follow OSHA Prescribed Strict Guidelines for controlling the affected area, ensuring a secure and certified procedure.
Remove The Body
Once the authorities are done with their investigation, it’s time for professional cleaners to step up and begin to work. The first step is to remove the cadaver from the scene. It isn’t a good idea for you to manipulate or have contact with the body in any way because you don’t know how much bacteria and contaminants you’ll have contact with.
With USA Bio Care cadaver removal services, you can be certain that the body won’t be mistreated. The body will be removed carefully from the property and to wherever you or the authorities indicate us. Body disposal is also one of our available services if you don’t want to go through any rituals.
Clean & Disinfect
Bleach and some soap can probably make everything seem clean, but it isn’t enough to disinfect the scene from all the harmful contaminants that might’ve been left behind. If there was a blood spill on the scene, you are exposed to bloodborne pathogens such as HIV, hepatitis B, and C or MRA. Because of this high exposure, an unattended death cleanup done by professionals is the best choice.
At USA Bio care, we provide science-based solutions to restore the scene to what it was before the tragedy, removing all types of bacteria, blood, tissue, fluids, and contaminants so that you don’t have to worry for your safety while going through this difficult process.
After the scene has been cleaned up, all the waste is collected and properly contained to be disposed of in a designated facility. This means blood and all the chemicals and investigation products left behind by the authorities, such as fingerprint powder. Any valuables such as items belonging to the deceased will be handed to you or the authorities as commanded.
Before finalizing the biohazard cleanup services, it is important to verify and guarantee high disinfection standards, just like those used at a hospital. The surface is tested with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which provides a measurement of potential risk due to the presence of high levels of organic residues.
