The Lady Vanishes …. or Getting Rid of the Body

  title={The Lady Vanishes …. or Getting Rid of the Body},
  author={Michael A. Simpson},
When a death occurs in a public institution such as a hospital, one of the problems that arises is how to dispose of the body in a manner congruent with the way in which death itself is conceptualized and handled in the institution. There is general agreement that the body should be prepared and moved in a seemly and proper fashion, and according to due procedure. By looking at these procedures, we can gain a clearer conception of current professional attitudes towards death.
