Hanoi (VNA) – Ten kidney patients receiving free treatment at Bach Mai Hospital Hanoi after a medical incident at Hoa Binh General Hospital have recovered and were discharged from the hospital on June 8.

The patients will continue receiving outpatient treatment (periodical dialysis) three times per week at Bach Mai Hospital.

Seven patients died on May 29 with suspected anaphylactic shock while receiving treatment at the General Hospital of Hoa Binh province. 

Once the deaths were reported, the provincial General Hospital turned off its dialysis machines and transferred the living patients to Hoa Binh city’s General Hospital and Hanoi-based Bach Mai hospital for emergency treatment.

One patient died on June 4, bringing the death toll to eight.
