Medical - Medical (general) / hospital report
French term or phrase: SIF
An autopsy report is addressed to Dr X, SIF. The only thing I can find for SIF in association with hôpital on Google is Service Incroyance et Foi. Seems doubtful that this is what it refers to. The hospital is in Belgium, by the way. Any ideas?? TIA.
