DEATH CARD = KARTA ZGONU, przynajmniej tak nazywa to Ambasada UK w Warszawie.

When a person dies in Poland (whether in hospital, at home, in the street) it is a medical doctor who certifies the death by issuing a death card (karta zgonu). The cause of death is stated on this card. The body is taken to a mortuary. The mortuaries in Poland meet European standards and provide refrigeration facilities.

The death card includes the cause of the death stated by a doctor or a medical examiner. If a person dies of natural causes an autopsy is not carried out. In the case of sudden or unexpected death an autopsy is required. (in such cases family’s consent for the autopsy is not needed as it is usually the Prosecutor’s decision).Autopsies are carried out by forensic doctors. In the case of a foreigner’s death, if organs are required for medical purposes like tests, transplantation etc, the family’s consent is required.
To complete the formalities it is necessary to obtain a local death certificate (akt zgonu), after a death card is issued.
