What I said was in reference to America. But I thought it was a nice simple graphic.
I don’t disagree with what you’re saying.
But I worked in QA at a hospital for six years and worked the courts.
There are sometimes cases brought to court to argue a police officer, for instance, pronounced death, only for a doctor to later certify the death at a different time.
If officers discover a body that’s been dead three days, EMTs do not attempt to resuscitate. And the police do not wait for a doctor to declare the death.
They pronounce the death, which is later certified by the doctor.
I don’t make the rules. Just reporting them.
