Embarrassing misunderstanding: Clinic contacts live patient's family to break bad news

The Jerarsi Clinic in Georgia contacted a patient's family to inform the members that the patient had died. However, as it later turned out, the clinic mistakenly contacted a live patient's family that found out the awkward mistake only after completing all procedures to take the "deceased" patient's body in a coffin on to the catafalque.

The patient's family member says that they completed all the procedures and went to the clinic; however, on their arrival, they learned that the patient was alive. "They said it was a mistake. What kind of an explanation is this?" Vladimer Abramia, the patient's family member, said.

The representatives of the clinic admitted their mistakes and said that a doctor working the night shift tried to contact the family of the patient who was really dead. The doctor tried hard but failed to contact the family; however, later, the doctor received the call and thought that the deceased patient's family was on the line and informed them of the patient's death. "The doctor was on the night shift and was exhausted, but the corresponding penalty measures will be taken," Ekaterine Kartsivadze, a doctor at the Jerarsi Clinic, said.
