The autopsy report says that your loved one died because of "natural causes." What does that really mean?
It means that their heart stopped. It also means that the lungs stopped working.
But the language in an autopsy report is often vague. It often does not explain in detail why the heart or lungs stopped. To understand why there was a heart attack or the lungs stopped it is imperative to fully review and evaluate the autopsy record.
If the autopsy is performed in a hospital where the person died, it is unlikely that the doctor will come right out and say that another doctor who treated you on the sixth floor departed from good and accepted medical practice.
When the autopsy report says "died of natural causes," it does not necessarily mean that the death was natural. It could be a result of improper medical care or it could be some other reason.
Regardless, it's important to understand that the words used in the report not really mean what it says.
