How Organ Donation Can Kill You

In a tragic, foreseeable and hence entirely preventable circumstance, an organ recipient has contracted HIV from a living male kidney donor who apparently had "unsafe sex" after being tested for the virus that causes AIDS but before donating the spare organ.

The issue of the medical and ethical questions surrounding organ donations has been in the news recently after New York City began an experimental organ preservation unit to rescue organs from cardiac arrest patients who "don't make it" back in December 2010.

I would expect the recipient, now saddled with an incurable and possibly fatal disease (or which could render the recipient vulnerable to other opportunistic and possibly lethal diseases), to sue any medical provider involved in the transplant, procurement or storage of the kidney, and the anonymous kidney donor.
