Mosambi Juice Given In Drip: A private hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj where a dengue patient died after being transfused fruit juice instead of blood platelets has been closed after a preliminary inquiry by the district administration into the incident revealed lapses in hospital management. It has been requested that strict action be taken against those responsible by the patient’s family.
As alleged by the relatives of the 32-year-old patient, the Global Hospital and Trauma Centre in Prayagraj (formerly Allahabad) supplied sweet lime juice in a bag labeled “plasma.” After receiving a transfusion from one of the hospital’s bags, the patient’s condition deteriorated. The patient was shifted to a second private hospital, where he died, the family said, and doctors there told them the ‘platelet’ bag was fake and actually a mixture of chemicals and sweet juice.
Saurabh Tripathi, a relative of the patient, said, “My 26-year-old sister is a widow. I want Yogi Adityanath’s government to take strict action against the hospital.”
Deputy Chief minister Brajesh Pathak said in a tweet, “In light of the viral video where a dengue patient was transfused with sweet lemon juice instead of platelets, the hospital has been sealed and platelet packets have been sent for testing.” He warned that strict action would be taken against the hospital if found guilty.
According to Prayagraj’s Additional Chief Medical Officer, the hospital will remain closed until the sample is tested.
Despite the hospital’s claims, the relatives of the patients procured the platelets themselves. According to the hospital owner, the patient’s platelets dropped to 17,000, prompting relatives to arrange for blood platelets.
According to the hospital owner, they brought five units of platelets from a government hospital. After transfusing three units, they had a reaction. We stopped the transfusion.
“We are investigating, and the platelets will also be tested,” Prayagraj District Magistrate Sanjay Kumar Khatri said.
