Max Hospital guilty, says govt

Max Hospital baby blunder: Four medical staff questioned

The case relates to the birth of twins (a boy and a girl) on November 30.

In a shocking incident, a premature baby who was delivered to Max Hospital and was declared dead by the city's Max Super Specialty Hospital on November 30, died on Wednesday.

"When we opened the bag, we found the boy breathing". "I was shocked. I couldn't believe my eyes".

The boy, who has been given the name Champ, is on life support at a Delhi nursing home.

"While the inquiry by the expert group which includes external experts from IMA is still in process, we have chose to terminate the services of the two treating doctors, Dr A P Mehta and Dr Vishal Gupta in the case relating to the twin extreme pre-term babies", Max Healthcare said in a statement. We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident. "We are managing to maintain his vitals at the moment but the condition is very serious", said Dr Sandeep Gupta, from the Centre.

DCPKhan said in the notice that CCTV footage has also been sought and the Max Hospital administration has to respond within two days as per the procedure. Rather, the terminations are a "reflection of our commitment to higher standards of care".

This case of medical negligence has received significant attention from local politicians.

This time it's for real — Pep v Jose
It was way back in late April - 29 matches ago - that City last tasted defeat in a competitive game - but that record was surely coming to an end.

An initial report by a three-member panel formed by Delhi Government has been submitted to the health minister Satyendar Jain.

Despite an ongoing investigation and a tweet from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stating that authorities would take the "strongest action" if someone is found at fault, the boy's grandfather is demanding that those involved face severe penalties.

The CM further said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has succeeded in restraining private schools from arbitrarily deciding their fee structure, adding that a similar legal framework would be put in place in the health sector to take action against errant private hospitals.

The much awaited preliminary enquiry report in Max Shalimar Bagh case has found hospital guilty of not having followed prescribed medical norms in dealing with the new born infants.

Two hours later, doctors declared the baby boy dead, CNN reported Saturday.

"In the meantime, we are fully cooperating with all relevant authorities on this issue", the statement said.
