I suppose this does happen at times.

'Dead' patient opened eyes minutes before NY docs were due to harvest organs: report - NYPOST.com

She ended up committing suicide not long afterwards.

The hospital submitted a plan to correct the problems to the state health department, which ordered it to hire a consulting neurologist to teach staff how to diagnose brain death and a consultant to review the hospital's quality assurance program.

Am I dumb in assuming that all hospitals should know how to diagnose brain death? I thought that was the current standard in pronouncing someone dead.
