Add deceased option as patient status

We would like to know if a person is deceased. It would eliminate embarrassing moments.

    this would be a nice feature. We are currently making their name all capitalized so it draws attention to us - in preferred name we put DOD and the date - this person of course is not listed as HOH so it doesn't appear on statements

    yes: this would be a v. helpful enhancement - also, when the patient's status is set to "DECEASED", the software can automatically clear all of the patient's Continuing Care types, insurance info, etc. A notation like "DECEASED" can also automatically appear someplace like "Preferred Name" field so that it prominently displays in all modules.
