Blood Transfusion Mistakes

There's no doubt about it—blood transfusions provide life-saving benefits to those who need them. They may be used to treat a patient who has experienced blood loss due to injury or surgery. They may be necessary to treat conditions ranging from severe anemia and clotting disorders to hemophilia or sickle-cell anemia.

What Causes a Blood Transfusion-Related Injury or Death?
Blood transfusions are usually performed with donated blood, and both the patient receiving the donation and the donor are tested to ensure that the blood types are a match. Donated blood is also screened for blood-borne illnesses, including HIV and AIDS.
But, contamination of blood products may occur. Seemingly simple actions, like improper storage, labeling, or handling can lead to the transmission of tainted blood.
A patient may become severely ill or die from an inappropriate blood transfusion caused by administrative or medical negligence. If you or a family member had an adverse reaction to a blood transfusion, speak with an attorney to determine whether negligence played a role in your injury.
