Patient Accuses Hospital Of Stealing Kidney

Patient Accuses Hospital Of Stealing Kidney

A hospital in southern China is being investigating for human organ trafficking after a patient claimed they removed one of her kidneys unnecessarily.

Factory worker Wai Jianmin, 29, had been admitted to Shenzhen Guangsheng Hospital, in China's Guangdong province, for a routine op to remove a blockage in her urinary tract.

But she was suspicious when she came round from the procedure and was told by the surgeon that her kidney had begun to bleed and had to be removed.

"I was worried because there had never been anything wrong with my kidney and yet here was the doctor telling me out of the blue that it had to go," said Wai.

"But when I asked for a second opinion or to transfer to a different hospital he told me that if I didn't have an operation I would die so I reluctantly signed the forms," she added.

After the op, Wai's suspicious family asked for independent tests on the kidney, which, they claim, had mysteriously disappeared from the hospital.

"I think they took my kidney and did something with it. They tried to hush me up by offering me money and compensation, but I want to know what went on," said Wai, who has made a formal complaint to police and health officials.

A hospital spokesman said: "The kidney was removed in agreement with expert opinion and is now in storage at the hospital."

Officials at the Shenzhen Health Inspection Bureau added: "We are investigating the allegations. There is no evidence of wrongdoing yet but we continue to interview people."
