A devastating incident has occurred in Rajasthan’s Jaipur, where a 23-year-old man lost his life due to an alleged wrong blood transfusion at the government-operated Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital. The victim, identified as Sachin Sharma from Bandikui, Rajasthan, was admitted to the hospital’s Trauma Centre following severe injuries sustained in a road accident.

During the course of his treatment at the hospital, Sachin Sharma encountered a grave error – a ward boy at the Trauma Centre mistakenly transfused O-positive blood instead of the required AB-positive blood. This critical mistake led to complications in both of Sachin’s kidneys, ultimately resulting in his untimely demise due to alleged negligence on the part of the hospital staff.

SMS Hospital Superintendent, Achal Sharma, expressed deep concern over the incident, acknowledging that the matter surfaced during Sachin’s treatment at the hospital. He confirmed that a specialized committee has been established to investigate the circumstances surrounding the wrongful blood transfusion. Prompt action will be taken based on the findings of the investigation.

As of the time of reporting, neither the victim’s family nor the hospital authorities have filed a formal complaint with the police regarding the incident. However, the tragic event underscores the critical importance of stringent protocols and safeguards in medical facilities to prevent such errors from occurring.

This unfortunate incident recalls a similar tragedy in 2022, when a dengue patient in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj passed away after purportedly receiving ‘mausami’ juice instead of the required plasma. The hospital involved was promptly sealed, and a thorough investigation was initiated by the Uttar Pradesh government to address the grave error.

The loss of Sachin Sharma serves as a poignant reminder of the critical need for meticulous attention to detail and adherence to established medical protocols to safeguard the lives of patients entrusted to the care of healthcare facilities. It is hoped that thorough investigations and appropriate measures will be taken to prevent such tragic incidents from recurring in the future.
