This is a personal issue. I really can't believe it. I went to my relatives' house today and they told me a story. My grandfather and his wife (not my lola) who are both based in the US came here sometime last year. During that time, his wife got sick and had to undergo an operation. She had it done in a VERY prestigious and high-end hospital here. Because she lost a lot of blood, she had to undergo a blood transfusion in that said hospital. Presently, she is now in the US and she's been in and out of the hospital. Lo and behold, what they discovered is that when she had her blood transfusion done, she contracted Hepatitis B from one of the blood donors. Now she already has liver damage because of the Hepa B, and she cannot recover due to her old age. I can't believe this has happened in one of the most prestigious hospitals here! Isn't it SOP to screen the blood first before transfusion to a patient? And now, she is paying for the hospital's mistake. And the hospital won't even suffer any consequences for their actions. Is this country THAT backwards? I'm sorry for ranting. I just feel so helpless and that these things still happen today.
