Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, Delhi has been found guilty by the panel made of three doctors to further inquire the case of gross ignorance in the case of infant twins, one of whom was declared wrongfully dead by the doctor prescribed to the case. The doctor on the case had declared the twins, who had been born prematurely at 22 weeks, dead, but in fact one of the babies was alive. His family had taken him and his brother to the graveyard, when their grandfather suddenly heard a rustling in the plastic in which the babies had been handed to the family. He discovered to his horrific relief, that one of the baby was alive.
The inquiry found out that the hospital authorities didn’t do an ECG, to find if the babies were dead. They were also not kept separate from each other. It is prescribed norm that an ECG should be conducted on every baby, to check for sure if it is alive or dead.
Max Hospital has refused to comment on the controversy, and has sent home on leave. A final report for the inquiry will be submitted by the panel, next week, and a decision will be made against the actions and negligence by the authorities in the twins case.
