Dengue patient transfused fruit juice instead of platelets : Hospital sealed

Prayagraj : A private hospital “Global Hospital & Trauma Centre” in the outskirts of the city was sealed after a dengue patient admitted there was allegedly transfused fruit juice instead of blood platelets. The patient, identified as Pradeep Pandey, condition deteriorated after the transfusion of fruit juice and was shifted to another hospital where he died. 

On the other hand, the owner of the hospital Saurabh Mishra said that since the patient’s platelets level dropped to 17,000, his relatives were asked to arrange blood platelets for the patient. “They brought five units of platelets from SRN Hospital. After transfusion of three units, the patient had a reaction. So we stopped it,” he said. Mishra added that the platelets should be examined and their origin should be traced because they had the sticker of SRN hospital on them. After the video of the alleged incident went viral on social media the hospital was sealed on the direction of Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak.
