ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's experience of her first patient death and the procedures which followed her the death on the ward. After she had known of the death of the patient, she was overwhelmed and excited of seeing a dead body for the first time. However, when she was already on the site of the deceased patient, she felt guilty and distressed about getting upset in front of other patients and getting angry at being unable to cope up with the patients death.
