Urmi Devi, a resident of Gumla district, was suffering from anaemia and a low haemoglobin level. She was admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Science where she died early on Wednesday.
"She was administered saline instead of blood. We had to take her from Emergency to the Gynaecology department and she was not treated properly which caused her death," said the husband of the woman.
This is not the first incident where the hospital has been accused of negligence. Earlier, it was alleged that a woman patient's left kidney was operated instead of right and a one-year-old boy died in August after his father failed to pay for his treatment.
