A blood transfusion error could be:

Most blood transfusion errors have to do with a medical condition known as Acute Hemolytic Transfusion Reaction, which happens whenever a patient is given the wrong type of blood.  But perhaps the most dangerous form of a blood transfusion malpractice occurs when a patient is the recipient of contaminated blood.  One blood transfusion error could result in an otherwise healthy patient contracting such diseases as Hepatitis or AIDS.

A blood transfusion error may also occur when a doctor does not order a transfusion in a timely manner.  A patient can only lose so much blood before the consequences become deadly.  Doctors must recognize such dire situations and make these important decisions on behalf of their patients.   The failure to do so is negligence and deserving of legal action.
