How can a non Jewish health professional give respectful care to a Jewish deceased patient’s body?

Hello, first time poster and I hope I’m not breaking any rules (I read them and it seemed ok to ask this). I am a doctor working trauma units and now with the pandemic, also caring for patients who fall ill because of covid-19. I work in a specific hospital in my country that caters to a large percentage of Jewish patients. However, we did not receive any training as to how to respectfully handle the deceased, and specially what not to do. I was wondering if anyone could give me some practical advice so I don’t end up not doing something important, or doing something inappropriate. Many families are not present when death occurs, so I can’t ask them what to do.

Thank you in advance!
