What is a Blood Transfusion?
The term 'blood transfusion' describes the taking of blood from one person and giving it to another, via a blood bank. A blood transfusion is often performed to compensate for dangerous levels of blood loss, to treat illnesses such as sickle cell disease, bone marrow failure, liver disease or haemophilia, and to treat newborns with conditions like severe jaundice.
How can it go wrong?
Related medical errors include:
- Giving the wrong type of blood to a patient
- Giving infected blood to a patient
- Carrying out a blood transfusion unnecessarily
- Giving the blood transfusion to the wrong patient
- Causing injury by a lack of care and attention when administering the transfusion
If you think your blood transfusion was performed negligently and you have suffered illness or injury as a result, then you should seek specialist medical and legal advice as soon as possible.
