Delhi Panel Finds Max Hospital Found Guilty of Not Following Medical Norms


The hospital authorities in a statement said the inquiry by the expert group was still in process but they have chose to terminate the services of two treating doctors, Dr. A. P. Mehta and Dr. Vishal Gupta in the case.

"When we opened the bag, we found the boy breathing", Praveen Malik, the twins' grandfather, told the news outlet.

Meanwhile on Sunday, the Max hospital administration has terminated the services of doctors.

An inquiry is underway, and if the doctors are charged and found guilty of attempted culpable homicide, they could face up to seven years in prison.

"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", the hospital said Saturday, adding that the case will be investigated with input from the Indian Medical Association.

A newborn who was erroneously declared "dead" by an upscale hospital in Delhi, India, died days after receiving treatment.

"We didn't get anything from the government except false promises", he said. We have initiated a detailed inquiry, pending which, the concerned doctor has been asked to proceed on leave immediately. "We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the needed support".

"He is on ventilator support, nutrition support and other supports".

The family is reportedly unsure if the boy will survive but they will not be taking him back to Max Hospital. "They betrayed us", Malik said.

A doctor in India mistakenly declared a newborn as dead shortly after delivering the boy's twin sister.

Union Health Minister JP Nadda had directed the Delhi government to look into the matter, after which the government ordered a probe and sought a preliminary report within three days.

While on their way to a cremation ground, the parents noticed "some movements" inside one of the polythene bags that the hospital gave them containing the babies' bodies. Video from the hospital also was being reviewed, police said.

The state Health Minister Satyendra Jain described the incident as "shocking criminal negligence", and also warned of canceling the hospital's license if it continued with the negligence.
