The Indian hospital that mistakenly pronounced newborn dead has lost its license

The Indian hospital that mistakenly pronounced newborn dead has lost its license

In its letter, marked also to Health Minister Satyender Jain, the doctors' body said that the government should wait for the report of the Delhi Medical Council (DMC) on the issue which is expected in a few days.

"Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh had become a habitual offender, we had no option but to cancel their license", news agency ANI quoted Jain as saying.

The move came after a three-member inquiry panel of the government submitted its final report to Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who described the incident as "not acceptable".

According to the government, indoor patients already admitted in the hospital would be given a choice by the hospital to continue treatment there or be transferred or shifted to another hospital of their choice. The infants were handed over to them in a polythene bag, they 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.

Delhi's local government on Friday cancelled the licence of a hospital that mistakenly declared a live infant dead a week ago.

The Delhi Medical Association (DMA) wrote to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today seeking the withdrawal of its "irrational and autocratic" order cancelling the licence of Max Super Specialty Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, and threatened to go on a strike. However, the baby showed some movement while being taken for burial.

"We have received a notice of cancellation of the licence of Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh".

Jain said current patients would be offered further treatment but that the hospital would not be accepting new patients. "We stand firmly behind our commitment to patient care, clinical and service excellence to the best of our capabilities", added the statement. The IMA yesterday termed the cancellation of the licence "too harsh a step".

Max Healthcare, the company that owns the hospital, criticised the ruling.
