Baby declared dead by hospital found alive before cremation

Baby declared dead by hospital found alive before cremation

Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Twitter that an official inquiry would be ordered, and that the "strongest action" would be taken if the doctors who had pronounced the child's death were found guilty.

Meanwhile, the hospital too said that it has begun investigating the incident which it termed "unfortunate".

"It has been brought to our attention that a 22-week newborn baby, who was reported to be on life support, was unfortunately handed over without any sign of life by Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. We immediately rushed to the nearby hospital", which confirmed the child was alive, said Ashish, the father of the children, to ANI.

Earlier in the day, Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda also asked the Delhi Government to take necessary action over the Max hospital's negligence. The family was later informed by the hospital that the twins were stillborn and handed over to the family, they said.

Family members of the newborn, who was declared dead along with his still-born twin by a Delhi hospital, on Saturday staged a sit-in protest outside the hospital demanding strict action against them. A few minutes ago, I was crying over the death of my babies and suddenly I saw one of them alive. This baby was one of the twins delivered on morning of November 30. "We don't trust the doctors there", Malik said.

"We couldn't afford the treatment and we made a decision to take our baby to another hospital".

While the baby, which was found to be alive is now under medical supervision at a hospital in Pitampura, Max Hospital claimed that it was "in constant touch" with the parents and providing "all the needed support". The other baby was stillborn.

A case has been registered under Section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). "We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident", the hospital added.

"We can have the doctor's name struck off from the national registry of doctors, based on our investigation", says Dr Girish Tyagi, registrar of Delhi's Medical Council. "We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the support needed", the statement said.

Delhi's minister of health also tweeted out that his department would conduct its own inquiry, calling the errant declaration of death an "unacceptable act".
