Hospital diagnosis: Please, sir, you are pregnant
71-a year-old patient of one of the American hospitals experienced quite a shock, when he heard from the staff, that she is pregnant. Is this a man repeat, who gave birth to the child ? NO, this is a funny slip-up of the hospital staff… John Grady Pippen, 71-summer American residing in Oregon, he was taken to hospital. There would be nothing surprising about this, were it not for the slightly strange diagnosis the doctors made… The man felt intense pains. He underwent extensive research. He certainly hadn't expected such an exceptional diagnosis… – Based on research, we established, that you are pregnant – this was the information John shocked read on the diagnosis delivered to his bed. Except for the diagnosis card, the man was given a dose of painkillers. Is this another case of a pregnant man? NO, the explanation for this is much more mundane. After investigating the case, it turned out, that there is no medical miracle behind the diagnosis, but an ordinary handling error. Diagnoses are made on the basis of research, then the patient receives them in writing. – Someone pressed the wrong button, when printing a diagnosis for this patient – William McMillan said, director of the hospital.
