Baby declared 'dead' by Max Hospital dies after five days

Meanwhile, the Delhi police on Wednesday transferred the case to its Crime Branch for a detailed probe, a senior official said. The baby boy died at a nursing home in Pitampura after battling for life for almost a week.

The hospital handed the twins to the family in a polythene sac, however, the boy was found alive while the parents were on the way to crematorium for performing last rites.

The baby was born on 30 November at Max Super Speciality in Shalimar Bagh area in the national capital, while his twin sister was stillborn.

While the preliminary report by the Health Department had found flaws in the hospital's treatment of the baby, Mr. Jain said the government would wait for the final report before taking any action.

The parents said the baby was alive while on their way to his funeral. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family.

Aslam Khan, deputy commissioner of police (northwest), also confirmed the news. "I will not take my son's body until the two doctors are arrested, so that we get justice", he said. "Thereafter, they gave us both babies wrapped in a plastic bag", said Ashish Kumar, father of the baby.

Max Healthcare fired the two doctors considered responsible earlier this week, but emphasized that the decision to let the doctors go should not be interpreted as an admission of guilt. "We wish to clarify that this action should not presuppose finding of any lapse by the expert group and should not be construed in any way to be anything other than an expression of our continued commitment to providing quality healthcare".

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case on Tuesday found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants. "Yesterday, the doctors told us he was critical and around 12:30 pm today, they told us he was no more", the infant's uncle Deepak said. Max Healthcare on December 4 had said that it had made a decision to terminate the services of two doctors allegedly involved in the case. The committee will submit its final report to Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain later this week.
