Slightly worrying story
« on: April 26, 2007, 11:42:24 AM »
FROM THE BBC

A hospital in the Republic of Ireland has set up an inquiry to investigate how a man pronounced dead was later found to be alive by morgue staff.
The disabled patient, in his 30s, was being treated in Dublin's Mater Hospital on Easter Sunday when ward staff mistakenly certified his death.

By the time the error was spotted his family had already been informed and were grieving for their loss.

The man has since been released from hospital.

A spokesman for the Mater said management have set up an inquiry.
