‘Ban Chugtai Lab’ or #BanChugtaiLab has been trending on Twitter. In a Tweet, it was shared that Chugtai Lab reported the wrong blood type for a patient. On the other hand, Surgimed Hospital in Lahore transfused the wrong blood type. And the patient, reportedly named Kiran, suffered from renal failure.
Before we understand what Hemolytic transfusion is, we need to understand why some patients need a blood transfusion. Blood transfusion involves the transfer of blood into someone’s circulation. This is done intravenously. This is used for several different medical reasons- especially when a patient has lost components of blood.
Hemolytic transfusion occurs when a patient’s blood type does not match with that of the transfused blood. After this, the transfused red blood cells are attacked by the immune system. This life-threatening, as it proved to be so in this case as well.
Kiran now has kidney [renal] failure because of the lab and hospital’s careless mistakes.

Systems need to be improved rather of banning the hospital itself.
Only a sincere governing policy can implement such systems which are in best interest of the nation.#JusticeforKiran #BanChughtaiLab pic.twitter.com/akGN0pw7Ol
