Taking note of the error on the part of the Thiruvananthapuram-based Samad Hospital and its doctor while managing a patient who underwent laparoscopic surgery at the hospital, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) recently held them guilty for wrong blood transfusion to the patient that ultimately led to her death, around 20 years ago.
