Newborn dies 7 days after mistakenly declared dead by Delhi hospital

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case on Tuesday found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants

The infant who was found alive after being declared dead by Max Hospital in New Delhi died on Wednesday at a private nursing home, The Hindu reported.

November 30, Ashish Kumar's wife gave birth to premature twins (boy and girl) at Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh.

An investigation report by Competition Commission of India (CCI) said that the Max Super Speciality Hospital, Patparganj, which has been accused of declaring an alive newborn dead, sells syringes double the open market price and earns 525 per cent profit from them.

The police had registered a case under Section 308 of the Indian Penal Code.

CCI also found the hospital and BD Ltd prima facie guilty of selling syringes from the hospital's pharmacy at double the MRP. "After we found that the child was alive, we shifted the baby to a local nursing home". His condition was critical from the very first day.

Asked to respond to the allegation by the father that no one from the Delhi government approached the family to help, he said, "There are certain legalities involved but we responded immediately and took action".

"We didn't get anything from the government except false promises", he said. It is a matter of two or three days. "We will not conduct the final rites until Max Hospital's licence is cancelled", said Deepak Bidawat, the uncle of the deceased baby. And, to shift a newborn in such a condition is a very hard task.

Moments after the doctors were sacked, the privately run Max Hospital issued a statement saying that "this strict action has been taken on the basis of our initial discussions with experts".

"We just learnt of the sad demise of the 23-week preterm baby, who was on ventilator support", Max Hospital said according to PTI. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family.

The Delhi government's preliminary inquiry report was submitted to the Delhi health minister on Tuesday; it found the hospital guilty of not having followed prescribed medical norms when dealing with newborn infants, a Delhi government official who was not authorized to speak on the record about the report told CNN.
