Pindo Mulla completed three important forms in 2018 before the procedure: an informed consent form, a long-term power of attorney, and an advance directive.

She claims that she made it clear in all three agreements that she was a Jehovah’s Witness and that she would not accept a blood transfusion of any kind, not even if it meant risking her life.

Pindo Mulla had a potentially fatal hemorrhage during surgery and was given a blood transfusion against her will, despite her intentions being clearly communicated.
