 BS RAWAT
NEW DELHI: The hospital did not follow prescribed procedures for determining whether the baby was dead or alive.

A three-member panel of doctors formed by the Delhi government to look into the case of a premature baby wrongly declared dead has found the Max Super Specialty Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.

The panel submitted its preliminary report to the Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain after scrutinising hospital records and meeting relevant workers and doctors.

The report said the doctors had not done ECG tracings to check if the child was alive. The 'body' was handed over without written instructions.

Delhi government had ordered the inquiry after the shocking case received media headlines. Minister Jain had said the hospital can lose its licence if found guilty of medical negligence.

Earlier, Max Healthcare terminated the services of two doctors allegedly involved in the case and the police lodged a case against the doctors.
