Max hospital case: Family seeks justice after twin of stillborn baby also dies
The infant died due to infection at a nursing home after battling for life for nearly a week
The 22-week-old baby, who was found alive after being declared dead by Max Hospital earlier this week, succumbed on Wednesday morning at a private nursing home in Pitampura.
The infant died due to an infection at a nursing home after battling for life for nearly a week - which jolted the entire family, which was demanding the arrest of erring doctors.
On November 30, Ashish Kumar's wife gave birth to premature twins (a boy and a girl) at Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh.
Both the babies were declared stillborn by the hospital and handed over to the family allegedly in a polythene bag. But to their utter horror, the the boy was still alive, while they were on way to do their final rites.
Talking to Mail Today, Ashish said, "I will not take my son's body until the two doctors are arrested. Due to the utter medical negligence at the Max Hospital (Shailmar Bagh) for not giving immediate healthcare to my babies, today, I lost another baby too."
He also said he will also not get his wife, who is still admitted at Max Hospital, discharged from until they get justice. The baby's uncle said that they will continue to protest outside Max Hospital.
