Member of Nursing team at S.L Raheja – A Fortis Associate Hospital, who for over two decades provided selfless care for the sick, continued doing so even after she was declared brain dead at the hospital, earlier today. The donor suffered a stroke and was admitted to S.L Raheja – A Fortis Associate Hospital for treatment 2 days ago. She was in the ICU on ventilator support and was subsequently declared brain dead.
Her family consented to donate her Heart, Liver and both Kidneys. While the Kidneys and Liver were transplanted into three waitlisted patients, the Heart was declared unfit for retrieval. Three city hospitals, five transplant coordinators and more than seven surgeons in the city worked tirelessly to retrieve, transport and transplant the donated organs. Liver and Kidneys from the 44yr old donor were transplanted to deserving patients across three city hospitals.
