Stockholm: A Swedish woman was informed by her insurance company that she had been dead for over a week following a mistake committed by her doctor, the media reported yesterday.
“I was shocked. It was not nice at all. I understood nothing about it,” the woman named Suanne Hemphala from eastern Sweden was quoted as saying by a Swedish regional newspaper called Arbetarbladet.
The story is nothing new for Swedish doctors, with two-three Swedes reportedly “dying” each year by mistake, said the Swedish online daily the Local.IANS
