A bench comprising Justice R.K. Agrawal, President and Dr. S.M. Kantikar, Member, has observed that, in most of the cases the hospital staff failing to respond to the signs and symptoms of a blood transfusion error. Thus, the cause can be as simple as a breakdown in safety protocols or poor training.

The bench noted that, though most hospitals and surgical centres have strict procedures on blood storage, but sometimes improper or poorly stored blood got issued. Reporting all transfusion-related adverse reactions to the Blood Bank promptly is more vital.
In this case, A. K. Nazeer and his wife Sajeena were undergoing infertility treatment at Samad Hospital, Thiruvananthapuram (‘Opposite Party No. 1’).
