CK Birla Hospitals enable first cadaver donation for road accident victim

Kolkata, Oct 2 (UNI) A 49-year-old resident of Baruipur who was pronounced brain-dead
earlier in the day by a team of doctors at CK Birla Hospitals -CMRI, would be all set to
donate his organs after his wife gave a nod.
A number of people will get a new lease of life from this donation. Due to a road accident
he was admitted to CMRI and underwent a neurosurgery. After 4 days he was declared
brain dead. Showing great courage, the donor’s wife decided to let her husband’s legacy
live on through this donation.
She was present at the hospital premises along with her 9-year-old daughter, during the
retrieval procedure that had set an example of greatness. No gift could have been greater
than this.
CK Birla Hospitals in collaboration with ROTTO helped in assisting and enabling this
donation. On Gandhi Jayati, this gift of life has empowered the hospital to build
partnerships and break down barriers to work collectively towards the noble goal of organ
donation.
Speaking on the occasion, Uttam Bose, Group CEO- CK Birla Hospitals, said “We
really appreciate the courage and generosity of the donor and his family. In a country like
India where shortage of organ causes patients to die regularly while on the waiting list,
even a single donation makes a massive difference.'
"The donor’s wife has played a crucial role in reaching this milestone even during such
a tragic time. We thank her whole heartedly for this extremely compassionate act. CK
Birla Hospitals is proud to be part of this selfless donation and we will continue to build
on this momentum,” he added.
CK Birla Hospitals will continue to support the nationwide united effort for organ donation
drive by closely working with the government, social service bodies and other hospitals.
It has carefully designed its organ transplant programmes to promote awareness, public
education and training among the community.
CK Birla Hospitals have geared up their cutting-edge innovation and expert team of
doctors to provide the best facilities for the patients.
