Here’s the thing: funeral homes and crematories aren’t invincible. We live in a lawsuit-happy world where even the smallest human error can have a huge impact on your credibility, reputation, business, and career.
For funeral homes, chain of custody and cremation tags should be handled with care. There are body tracking systems in place that can help streamline the process and protect your reputation.
But before you look into these types of systems, it’s important to understand why they exist in the first place.
Sure, you can purchase cremation tags and track the location of every decedent with the ole’ pen and paper.
But at some point, you may want to invest in a streamlined, end-to-end system that holds your team accountable, organizes every case, and helps reduce any potential human error that can take place with decedent tracking.
Some systems (such as KeepTrack™) provide your team with both cremation tags and software that allows you to track each step in every decedent’s care process with ease. Plus, you can use a system like KeepTrack from your phone to record belongings, require signatures for verified steps, access a digital whiteboard with every location in your facility, and automate updates to families during every loved one’s care.
The data speaks for itself: funeral homes and crematories operations are not easy, and oftentimes stressful. Mistakes happen. Lawsuits do happen. So the question stands – what are you and your team doing to address chain of custody?
Our team at Gather is happy to help answer any questions you may have about how a system like KeepTrack™ helps you address this growing issue in the funeral service profession.
