Blood Group O Type Shortage Forces Hospital To Cancel Critical Operations5 years ago
Mpilo Hospital clinical director, Dr Solwayo Ngwenya said they have been forced to cancel critical operations because of shortages of blood Group O in the country.
Said Dr Ngwenya:
The situation is very critical. We’ve been having this problem for weeks now. So far we are lucky, we haven’t lost lives directly but it’s an inconvenience to patients because some of them have their operations cancelled because their blood type is not available.Feedback
National Blood Services of Zimbabwe (NBZS) public relations officer, Mr Sifundo Ngwenya said blood group O was universal hence its demand is higher than any other blood group. He appealed to Zimbabweans to donate blood and said that as NBZS they are embarking on a drive to boost blood stocks.
