A document issued by a medical practitioner certifying the deceased state of a person or popularly.
A document issued by a person such as a registrar of vital statistics that declares the date, location and cause of a person's death as later entered in an official register of deaths. Why a death certificate? Prove the time and date of death.

The physician in charge (e.g. consultant or resident) fills the death report in Arabic and in English (to keep in the patient’s file) then two physicians, one of which is a consultant, sign the report. The Arabic form is sent to the mortuary. After that, a copy of the Arabic death report is delivered to the Office of Mortuaries and Births, an administration in the Ministry of Interior, by the relative(s) of the deceased to issue a death certificate. In King Fahad National Guard Hospital:
The physician in charge (e.g. consultant or resident) fills the report by hand. Afterwards, this report is sent to the medical records department where it is typed and translated into Arabic by qualified translators. Consequently, this form is sent to the physician who wrote it in the first place for signature. The death report is then kept in the file and a copy is given to the relative(s) of the deceased. Finally, (as above) this copy is provided to the Office of Mortuaries and Births, an administration in the Ministry of Interior, to issue a death certificate.
