According to  finding a weakly stable matching in a stable marriage (or SM) instance with incomplete lists and ties is NP-Hard.
According to  a weakly stable matching in a hospital-residents (or HR) instance with ties always exists and one can be found by arbitrarily breaking the ties and applying one of the known algorithms for the HR problem.
Also HR with ties is a generalization of SM with incomplete lists and ties.
Isn't there a conflict here?
