What Does Unattended Death Mean?

Guest blog by John Tarr


This is a very unusual sounding word and frankly, not one I had heard before until I started designing AZ-BIO’s website. One of the things I find interesting as a website designer is how much I learn about a business that I am making this online presence for.

As I built different pages and blogs (like this one) I landed on this two-word term, so I knew I would have to investigate.

When you add a third word to that phrase like “cleanup” you know what one of the services AZ-BIO offers but it still did not get me any closer to expanding my vocabulary in an understanding way. The term “Unattended Death Cleanup” almost sounded counterintuitive.

I understood death and the word cleanup but “unattended”? Who came up with that word?


Understanding Unattended Death

Definition Unattended Death

I decided to go to Google for help. (where else). The first place I found was Quora a place for word definitions. They got me in the ballgame right off the bat. This is what they said:

 “Unattended Death means the death which is not attended or discovered by anyone. An unattended death happens when someone dies alone. Discovery of dead body may take hours, days, weeks or even months.”

This explanation seemed very sad to me. Death is sad in and of itself but dying with no one around for days, weeks or months is hard to comprehend that so many individuals do not have people in their lives that would not notice they are missing.

There are a number of reasons for unattended death such as:



Natural Causes like a fatal heart attack or stroke


By designing AZ-BIO’s website I have found that you should treat a dead body very carefully because it can cause all kind of problems depending on how long the body has lain there before being discovered and how hot the environment it has been in.

Dealing with the cleanup from a corpse is something that is best left to a professional such as AZ-BIO. It is not for the faint of heart nor do most people have the kind of equipment and chemicals to deal with this heavy-duty situation.

Suicide Unattended Death

There a number of things you should do if you come across an unattended death:

Contact Authorities.

Arrange to transport the body

Reach out to friends and family.

DO NOT do the cleaning yourself or a friend but hire a professional do the cleanup.

Seek counseling

Many times, an autopsy will have to be done to find out the cause of death because no doctor or professional was present at the time of death to confirm if it was natural causes, suicide or homicide.
