As per reports, it has been revealed that the Alfred hospital in Melbourne has closed the adult transplant program for one week that was from September 22 to 28 in 2001. During that period, a pair of lungs was being turned away by saying that they do not have enough funds.
Further investigations have revealed that the lungs were being offered by an elderly, who was aged somewhere around 71 years. In any case, his lungs would not have been used. Ombudsman George Brouwer was of the view that his investigation did not find any other loses in terms of organ rejection.
"The Alfred only received (and rejected) one organ offer during the closure, as in previous weeks it had received up to eight offers", asserted Brouwer while telling that it was lucky that the hospital did not close their unit that week when they received eight offers.
It was an effort of the Federal Government that organ and tissue donations were being stated in the hospital. However, due to lack of funds, the hospital was forced to close the unit. It needed funds from the government, but could not receive the desired amount, so the programmes remain closed.
