Haryana govt orders inquiry in Gurgaon hospital delivery case

Written by: Staff

Chandigarh, Sep 11 (UNI) The Haryana government today ordered an inquiry into the circumstances leading to the delivery of a baby in the corridor of the Civil Hospital at Gurgaon last evening.

''Action will be taken, in case any employee is found guilty'', Gurgaon Civil Surgeon, Dr Dharmvir Saharan said.

Dr Saharan said that a patient was admitted to maternity ward of the hospital at 1910 hours yesterday.

The staff nurse on duty asked the patient for her previous antenatal record, if any, about which the attendants expressed ignoranance. The attendants demanded that the patient be given pain relieving injection, but the staff nurse refused as labour pains were normal.

The attendants of the patient and the staff nurse had a tiff and the lone male attendant was asked to leave the maternity ward where males were not permitted. Ignoring medial advice, the attendants took the patient out of the maternity ward.

Dr Saharan said that unfortunately, the baby was delivered outside the maternity ward.

He said that as per his directions and that of Medical Superintendent and District Training Officer, the patient was immediately shifted back to the maternity ward.

The Civil Surgeon claimed that both the mother and the baby were healthy and were still admitted in the ward.
