Newborn death case costs Max Hospital in Delhi its licence

After wrongly declaring a baby dead, Delhi government on Friday announced the cancellation of Max Hospital's licence, reported the Janta ka reporter.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Saturday said that Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh had become a repeat offender, thus, the government had no option but to cancel its license. The baby was admitted to a hospital in Pitampura but later died during treatment.

In the cancellation order, which comes after a three-member panel submitted a report to Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, the government has stopped the hospital from admitting any new patients and halted all outpatient treatment services and laboratory tests on the premises with immediate effect. The committee's report finds the hospiltal guilty of medical negligence.

"Whereas we don't wish to interfere in day to day functioning of pvt hospitals, however, open loot or criminal negligence by any hospital won't be tolerated. We won't hesitate to take strongest action in such cases (sic)", Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted. "And today, we feel somehow redeemed, that some justice has been delivered", said Sunil Kumar, uncle of the baby boy.

The patients who have come to the hospital for dialysis are being sent back. "This will compound the shortage of hospital facilities in the national capital", the hospital chain said in a statement. "We stand firmly behind our commitment to patient care, clinical and service excellence to the best of our capabilities".

Kumar, father of the twins, has refused to take the body of his child, and had demanded that the doctors of Max Hospital responsible for the act of negligence be arrested.

"This is also the third case where the hospital has been found at fault in the past three months", Jain said.

The newborn at the centre of the case died in a Delhi nursing home on Wednesday a week after he was declared dead by doctors at Max Hospital Shalimarbag. The grandfather discovered that the baby was still alive while taking the "body" for cremation.
