I believe that a physician who has not seen a patient for over 11 months may not be the most appropriate physician to sign the death certificate. A physican with more recent contact with the patient could complete the death certificate more accurately. This may also create a situation of liability for the physician who has not seen the patient for several months. I oppose this change in the law. Dana Wallace
