THANH HÓA — The life of a badly injured five-year-old child was saved after she received blood donated by doctors at Thạch Thành District General Hospital in the central Thanh Hóa Province yesterday.

The child had been hospitalised after a road accident, with injuries to her internal organs that required immediate surgery and blood transfusion, hospital Director Nguyễn Đình Tam said.

The hospital called for blood donations from hospital staff to save the child’s life, as the hospital had run out of blood group B.

The child was recovering well after a three-hour surgery, he said.

Tam said the hospital usually faced a severe shortage of blood and so had formed a group of employees who voluntarily donated blood in emergencies. The lives of many patients have been saved with the donated blood. — VNS
