Infectious and Noninfectious Risks in a Blood Transfusion
The risks associated with blood transfusion usually fall into two distinct categories: infectious and noninfectious risks.
Injuries that can result from these risks can be life-threatening and are usually the result of medical negligence. Examples include:
- Patient misidentification
- Administrative errors
- Issuing the wrong blood
- Incorrectly storing the blood
- Sample errors
Contaminated instruments and blood samples can easily lead to the transmission of infectious agents, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, and even parasites.
Despite intensive preventative strategies, blood transfusion patients run the risk of contracting highly infectious viruses such as hepatitis and HIV. Noninfectious risks including iron overload, hypocalcaemia, hypothermia, hemoglobinuria, and hyperkalemia, while not life-threatening, can still cause an individual significant pain and discomfort. Other more serious risks, such as circulatory overload and air embolism, are easily avoidable if medical personnel follow the proper procedures.
Fight for the Financial Recovery You Deserve
Medical professionals receive high levels of training in order to avoid these mistakes. Even with advanced training and years or intense study and practice, injuries resulting from blood transfusions are common. You should not have to pay the serious price for another individual's mistakes.
Our firm has recovered over $1 billion in compensation for our clients and our attorneys have been named to The Best Lawyers in America©. We have the resources and experience to take on challenging claims involving all types of medical mistakes.
