Blood Transfusion Mistakes

Blood transfusions are sometimes necessary for trauma victims, heart surgery, organ transplants and patients receiving treatment for cancer, leukemia or other diseases. When a blood transfusion is needed for the patient's survival, the hospital will get a blood sample from the person who is going to receive the blood product to be typed and screened for proteins to match against the blood to be transfused. There have been cases where the blood product is not properly typed and screened or the wrong blood is transferred despite properly typed and screened samples. Improper blood transfusions can result in a transfusion reaction that can result in severe permanent injury and, in some cases, death.
