Infant who was wrongly declared dead by Delhi Hospital dies at a private nursing home says family

"The notification came late Wednesday evening stating that the case has been transferred to Crime Branch", said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West) Aslam Khan. The baby boy died at a nursing home in Pitampura after battling for life for almost a week. The family, on it's way to the crematorium, found one of the babies alive and took it to the hospital.

Dr Sandeep Gupta who was treating the infant at the Delhi New Born Centre told CNN news that he knew from the beginning that the child may not survive.

The family rushed the baby to a nearby nursing home in Pitampura, while the mother remained at Max Hospital as she was very weak. However, Dr Sanjeev Gupta of Aggarwal Hospital said that baby was of just 22 weeks and it was hard for him to survive from the start as he needed too much support.

Max Healthcare authorities today released a statement saying, "We just learnt of the sad demise of the 23-week preterm baby, who was on ventilator support". "I will not take my son's body until the two doctors are arrested, so that we get justice", he said.

Father of the baby, Ashish Kumar, alleged that the baby acquired severe infection from the incident and that doctors at Max Hospital were responsible for the fate of his child. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family.

Evolution of mobile phones
Like the flip phone, it was also comprised of two parts but they came together and apart by sliding the parts on a rail. Given the fast pace of growth, the future is bound to hold even many more implications for mobile phone users.

"We wish to clarify that this action should not presuppose finding of any lapse by the expert group and should not be construed in any way to be anything other than an expression of our continued commitment to providing quality healthcare", the statement from Max Healthcare said. Video from the hospital also was being reviewed, they said.

"We want the Delhi government to take strict action against the hospital authorities for their negligence", said Malik.

A Delhi government panel found on Tuesday that the hospital did not conduct electrocardiography to determine whether the baby was alive.

On December 2, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain had said the hospital's licence could be cancelled if a probe found it guilty of medical negligence.

The development has come a few days after a set of twins were declared dead by the Max Hospital doctors.
