 Children contract HIV due to negligence


Five Thelisemic children have been infected with HIV due to tainted blood transfusions in a hospital in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The Umaid hospital's medical negligence has left the parents shattered and their children's lives irreparably damaged.

Expectedly doctors in the hospital are trying to deflect the blame for the tragedy. A report submitted to the government on Tuesday (February 9)has virtually given a clean chit to the facility, saying the infection might have happened from elsewhere.

The SN Medical College in Jodhpur has sent a detailed report to the government on the incident, which came to light when the blood of a child was tested in the microbiology lab of the medical college.

The children had allegedly contacted the disease during blood transfusion at Umaid Hospital. This was disclosed during a Thelisemic camp last year.

Taking cognizance of the issue, the Rajasthan State AIDS Control Society had sought a detailed report from the hospital. The medical college was asked to look into the issue as the Umaid hospital comes under its jurisdiction.

D B Gupta, the acting principal of the medical college, who sent the report to government, said "we have mentioned in the report that we follow the standardized and NACO-certified parameters in our hospitals and the chances of getting the children infected with the HIV in the process are the least."

"There is a greater chance that they might have contacted the deadly virus elsewhere, as a Thelisemic patient many a time gets treatment outside hospital or there are a number of other
reasons of infection in the children."

D R Dabi, the Superintendent of the Umaid Hospital, said the blood transfusion took place about a year back and that there was little chance of contracting the disease from the hospital as the process of blood test is NACO-certified.

However, he has not denied possibility of infection saying the hospital lacked advanced PCR technique for tests.

This is not the first case of alleged medical negligence to be reported in the last few months; In November last year ten people in Nellore and 7 in Tarapuram Tamil Nadu lost their vision after undergoing cataract operations.
