Death certificates / hospital question

I, unfortunately, witnessed my grandfathers death last week, in the hospital. This happened shortly after 12 noon. I know that he passed away after 12 because I (and others) saw him take his last breath - a very distinct inhale/exhale before his heart rate plummeted according to the machine he was hooked up to. A doctor signed his death certificate that he passed away at 1130, nearly 40 minutes before he actually (well, or so we believed... not sure what to believe now) passed away. What would reason for this be?

Also can the monitors which are displayed in patients rooms that state heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, etc., - can they be controlled/manipulated (changed) from the nurse's station?
