In the US a surviving spouse is responsible if the married couple resided in a community property state or the spouse accepted the responsibilty by signing a written agreement. If such is not the case and the deceased had no unexempt assets that can be used to pay medical expenses the debt becomes null and void. Surviving children or other relatives are not responsible for the debt unless they signed a written agreement accepting responsibility.
The estate is responsible of course. No they are not personally responsible for the debt. One of the primary reasons to open an estate is to resolve such debts. The estate has to pay off the debts. If the estate cannot do so, they distribute as best they can. If the court approves the distribution, the debts are ended.
The deceases "estate" should take care of any medical bills that have gone unpaid. Also Medicare should be paying part of this if the deceased was age 65 or over. Whether or not the hospital can come after family members for this needs to be answered. Surviving family members are not responsible for medical costs of a deceased person unless they entered into a written contract with the care facility.
If there is no inheirator of the deceased's estate no one is responsible. However if you have inheireted the decease estate and accepted that then you also have to accept the debt. Payment of debt should come from the estate of the deceased. If the estate of the deceased is without sufficient resources to pay the debts and the deceased does not have joint obligation with anyone, the total of debt should be added together and the estate should be divided equally among the debts. If anything is left after paying all debts of the deceased, the remaining resources can be divided among suvivors or beneficiaries.
