Remove all tubes and equipment (unless organ donation is to take place), clean the body, and position appropriately.

The body of the deceased should be prepared before the family comes in to view and say their goodbyes. This includes removing all equipment, tubes, supplies, and dirty linens according to protocol, bathing the client, applying clean sheets, and removing trash from the room.
