Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Filed against Hospital

A man who developed an infection after donating blood at a hospital has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit. In the past 10 years, the 43 year old had regularly donated his O-positive type blood for free at the blood center. However, in April 2009 he came down with a debilitating infection. When he could no longer afford the hospital expenses anymore, he was denied care. The man filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging that they took his blood and backed out of a promise to take care of him if anything happened to him by virtue of his donations. The medical malpractice furthermore accuses the hospital of being unjustly enriched by taking his blood under false pretenses and selling it. The director of communications for the hospital stated that there is a possibility that donors may get infections from sources unrelated to a blood donation.
