Fresno Blood Transfusion Injuries Lawyer
What is Blood Transfusion Injury?
When a patient has suffered a severe loss of blood due to injury, trauma, or during a surgical procedure, a blood transfusion to replace lost blood can be a life saving medical procedure. Blood transfusions are usually performed with donated blood or blood-based products such as platelets, and when they are done improperly the results can be devastating to the health of the patient. Blood transfusion injuries usually occur due to negligence or error on the part of the health care provider while collecting, transporting, storing or transfusing the blood. Common blood transfusion errors include:
- Wrong blood type
- Contaminated or tainted blood
- Problems with blood compatibility
- Improper labeling or storage of blood
- Lack of informed consent for the transfusion
- Inadequate blood and patient verification protocol
- Inadequate staffing or staff training
One or more of these blood transfusion errors can result in catastrophic injury to the patient, ranging from blood clots to
wrongful death. If you or someone you know has been the victim of blood transfusion injuries in Fresno, it's important to consult with a
medical malpractice attorney to discuss your legal options
