Baby wrongly declared dead by Max Hospital passes away

A preliminary inquiry report submitted by a Delhi government-appointed three-member panel of doctors to Health Minister Satyendra Kumar Jain on Tuesday revealed that Max didn't follow prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborns.

The newborn who was wrongly declared dead by a private hospital in Delhi passed away on Wednesday. The body was handed over to the parent without written instructions, in a plastic bag.

They were preparing funeral rites for the infant when they felt him start to move around.

Delhi police said they were collecting hospital records for the mother and treatment records for the newborn babies.

An Indian hospital fired two doctors after a baby they pronounced dead woke up on the way to his own funeral.

On Saturday, Jain had said that strict action would be taken against the hospital and if required its licence would be cancelled. The police had registered a case against the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh. However, just moments before being buried the family had found that the baby was alive.
