Newborn wrongly declared dead by Max succumbs

Battling for his life for a week, the premature born baby among the twins, who was found alive after being declared dead by Max Hospital, died on Wednesday in Pitampura nursing home. 

While refusing to take the body and demanding arrest of the doctors involved and cancellation of the Max’s licence, victim’s father said, “I will not take my son’s body until the two doctors are arrested. I will also not get my wife, who is still admitted at Max Hospital, discharged, until we get justice.”

In November, Ashish Kumar’s wife gave birth to premature twins at Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh but both the babies were declared stillborn. The hospital handed the twins to the family in a polythene sac, however, the boy was found alive while the parents were on the way to crematorium for performing last rites. The family rushed the boy to a nearby nursing home in Pitampura.

The enquiry committee formed by the Delhi Government to look into the case submitted its preliminary report on Tuesday in which it found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborns.
