A hospital in Chongqing mistakenly issued anticancer drugs to pregnant women as abortion pills and let the pregnant women decide whether to keep the fetus or not


2022-01-14: [Article Link]  Covered journalist. Recently, after a check-up at the local maternal and child health-care maternity service in Chongqing Longevity District, the hospital pharmacy issued the “carcinogen” as an anti-cancer drug. Although the hospital admitted that it was its fault, the woman and her family had to choose between the “staying” of the foetus. On the morning of 14 January, the cover news contacted the lady and her husband, Mr. Tsang. As it was too hard to communicate with outsiders, Mr. Tsang, on behalf of his wife, said: “This child is very difficult to come, and there is no choice!” Women's and Children's Maternity Service Centre in Chongqing District The hospital gave the wrong drug. Pregnant women's birth security risked becoming “relapsing” “There is no choice,” Mr. Chen said, because the 29-year-old wife paid the woman for the wrong drugs in the hospital. Two months ago, she found out that she was pregnant and made two people happy. But the baby’s happiness ended on 2 January. On the same day, the woman was accompanied by her family to the maternity centre for maternal and child health care in the area of longevity, where she was diagnosed by a doctor with signs of an abortion and was advised to keep the child alive, and a prescription was issued to keep the child alive. Unfortunately, at 7 p.m., Ms. Pay received a call from the hospital stating that the “drug was wrong” and that, unfortunately, she had already taken the wrong medication at that time. Mr. Chen said that the prescription given to his wife by the doctor at the time was a yellow ketamine capsule and a kidney-breeding pill. The pharmacy staff, however, misfired the “yellow ketamine cyst” into a “torimifen film”, the latter being a drug for the treatment of transferred breast cancer, which was clearly stated in its instructions that pregnant women were not allowed to use. “It also says the daily dose, twice a day, one at a time.” She says, “I am the first pregnant woman to have no experience or know the name of each drug, what the specific efficacy is, and I take it when I have complete confidence in the hospital.” After learning that she had taken the wrong medication, she found out about the hospital's request to deal with the problems that might arise, and the Maternal and Child Health Maternity Service Centre in Longevity District acknowledged their work failures and apologized to the lady. As for the solution, the hospital offered two options: first, to keep the foetus, the centre's doctors indicated that, in the event that they chose to keep the foetus, they would carry out a periodic examination of the foetus and, if the foetus was found to be deformed or ill, to correct the disease that could be corrected, but the risk was shared by the hospital and the woman paying for it; and second, to abort the foetus in order to pay for the woman's abortion. The wrong drug was given to a pregnant woman and she was banned from using "Torimifines with acid". The doctor prescribed the drug as “Yellow ketamine soft capsules and renal birth pills”. The hospital suggested that “it is best not to have children”. The party couldn't handle the near collapse. On 14 January, the cover story came to the long-term contact of the couple, and the husband told the cover journalist that in the morning, they had communicated with the Maternal and Child Maternity Service Centre in the Long-Live District, the Long-Live District Health and Health Board, and a gynaecologist and obstetrician expert who had come to Chongqing City. At the same time, the expert joined with the local doctor for longevity to treat the woman. The expert informed the couple that the effects of the use of the thorium tablets on the woman could not be estimated because there were no clinical data on the pregnant woman during the research and development process. Upon enquiry, the cover journalist learned that the disease targeted by the Toremien film was “post-menopausal estrogen receptor positive or unknown transferary breast cancer”. At the same time, the instructions clearly state that this product has been found to be reproductive in animal trials and that during this period it was banned because of the lack of data on the use of this product by pregnant and lactating women. Thus, if the foetus was retained, the hospital gave the option to the woman and her family. However, such a choice would be very difficult for a woman and her husband, “because my wife was emotional and she was crying and went home for a simple consultation. Mr. Chen also informed the cover journalist that, at the consultation meeting, the hospital insisted that the choice was on the woman's side, and that other issues had not been addressed, while the gynaecologist and obstetrician at the Maternal and Child Maternity Service Centre in Longevity District stated that “the hospital has a corresponding programme regardless of the solution chosen. “The hospital lets us make our own choices, and they prefer to advise us not, but the kid is a hard one, and we have no idea what to do. My wife is unstable and even depressed, and she has to be taken care of. When she says this, she cries and can't talk to anyone else about it. A member of Chongqing’s medical profession told the cover story that the responsibility for the whole thing lay with the hospital. In the current situation, where there was a general increase in the level of intelligence of the hospital, it was possible to judge how the hospital’s dispensary was managed, and how the incident was characterized, who was held accountable, and what the competent authorities were required to conclude after a full investigation. He deduced that the current most stressful “must be the pharmacist who gave the wrong medication and the entire pharmaceutical department.” In addition, the industry also stated that it would be the best result for the hospital to pay the lady to kill the foetus “because it would be done once and for all and keep the foetus, and it would not be clear what the situation would be in the future”. Liu Xiaoqiang, Chongqiang Lei's law firm, stated that the incident was essentially a medical accident and that “the civil dispute of this kind was an apology and financial compensation, but since it was not possible to determine the direct consequences, the exact amount of the compensation to be paid to the lady was difficult to determine and had to be dealt with jointly by both parties and even the competent authorities.
