The investigation ended when police located his body in the morgue and officers are now looking into why the hospital failed to the family.

Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton told Melbourne radio 3AW on Thursday that the case is now being followed up to give the family as much information as possible.

'This is clearly a case where there's a mishap, in that the family haven't been notified when they should've been notified, and we have to make sure we look at how we get that right,' Mr Ashton said.

Barwon Health and Victoria Police are now liaising over the blunder, after they claimed police were contacted on the day Mr Conway died.

'Barwon Health has unreservedly apologised for the distress caused by the delay and the manner in which the family was notified of their relative's death,' the hospital said in a statement.

While hospital staff attempted to contact Mr Conway's next of kin multiple times, they had no luck and notified police.

'We are awaiting advice regarding the internal communication between the police involved in the initial notification to police at the time of the patient's death and the police involved in the coroner's case,' the statement said.

If someone dies in hospital, the hospital usually notifies next of kin but in this case there 'might have been' an issue.

'The family have gone through a week of not knowing and having to deal with that, and then, in turn, having the ongoing grief they've got to go through compounded by it, so it's a sad case indeed,' Mr Ashton said.
