Toddlers' death in hospital: Probe team to submit report soon

Indore, June 7: The high-level investigation team constituted to probe the death of two children, who were administered an anaesthetic agent instead of oxygen at the Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital here, will submit its report within two days to Madhya Pradesh government.

"The probe report is in the last leg of preparation and we will submit it to the state government within the next two days," head of the five-member team constituted by state government, Dr Shashi Gandhi, said.


The team comprises an anaesthetist, a pediatric surgeon, a paediatrician and a chief engineer of PWD.

One-year-old Rajveer died on May 29, two days after he was given an anaesthetic agent, nitrous oxide, instead of oxygen while undergoing a surgery at the state-run hospital.

Two days ago, Ayush (5) died during a hernia surgery after being given the anaesthetic agent instead of oxygen.

The inquiry found out that there had been a confusion, due to which the pipe which was supposed to provide oxygen, instead supplied the anaesthetic.

An FIR was registered against a technician of a private company which looked after the piping system in the operation theatre of the hospital.
