Newborn, declared dead by Delhi Hospital, passes away
New Delhi: A premature baby, who was wrongly declared dead by a Max Hospital in New Delhi last week, has died during treatment last evening.
Aslam Khan, deputy commissioner of police (northwest), confirmed the news.
A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case, yesterday found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.
Earlier, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain had said the hospital’s licence could be cancelled if the probe found it guilty of medical negligence.
The case relates to the birth of twins (a boy and a girl) on November 30.
The parents alleged the babies were declared dead by the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh but they later discovered that the boy was alive.
