Accompanying death, organising the end of life: An ethnography of a geriatric acute care department

Abstract : This paper studies the organisation of death in a hospital. Beyond ethical issues, we examine the technical, professional, and sociological stakes of the management of end of life situations. Through an ethnographic study we followed geriatricians and their efforts to organise a ‘good’ death. We show that this invisible work aims at organising the passage toward a “natural” and “confortable” death, a death that is not only “peaceful” but also accompanied.
