Hello guys!

I have a very strange question…I’ve just heard that in one of Montreal’s hospital, in neonatology department, one of the social worker’s tasks is to wash and dress the body of dead newborns…I have difficulties to believe in it, but the information is true… I was wondering if there is a same practice in the other parts of the world. In my opinion it is not that a social worker should do and it has to be someone from ritual services. Maybe I am wrong?
