Doctors sacked for declaring premature baby dead, cops to grill authorities

Doctors sacked for declaring premature baby dead, cops to grill authorities

Delhi’s Max Super Speciality Hospital that finds itself marred with a medical negligence case- wherein a newborn was declared dead, has now sacked the doctors responsible for the oversight.

Dr AP Mehta and Dr Vishal Gupta’s services have been terminated with immediate effect for gross medical negligence that nearly cost a life. Meanwhile, Delhi police has also sent a notice to the hospital to join the investigation. The police will be questioning the authorities and recording their statements. A case has been filed under IPC section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide).

Shalimar Bagh’s Max Super Speciality Hospital was recently in the news, after a set of twins were declared dead by the doctors and were handed over to the family packed in a plastic bag each.

When the family took the two ‘dead’ children to the crematorium, they felt something move inside one of the bags – and to their surprise, one of the infants was alive.

The baby was rushed to a nearby hospital, while the family filed a complaint against the hospital.

Meanwhile, a report by a team formed by members of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and those of the hospital is yet to be filed in this case.

Earlier on Saturday, Delhi health minister Satyendra Jain had said that strict action will be taken against those found guilty and if need be, Max Hospital’s licence would be revoked.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also sought a detailed report in this matter.
