DID KK HOSPITAL BREACH DOC-PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY BY SENDING SMS REMINDER TO WRONG PERSON?

Yesterday I received a SMS reminder from KK hospital about an appointment that I did not have. It turns out that they had mistakenly a reminder for someone else's appointment to my handphone number. I am wondering if it is ethical and morally right for a hospital to send the SMS reminder to the wrong person because now I know the identity of the person who is seeking treatment from which doctor for which disease. Where is the doctor-patient confidentiality?
