Delhi: A premature baby dies last night in Delhi’s Malviya Nagar’s Pandit Madan Mohan hospital due to unavailability of a ventilator in the hospital around 9:00 PM. The family accused the hospital management and held the nurse hostage.

The CMO of the hospital told ANI that the child who was born with a weight of around 1 kg and needed ventilation. We transferred the patient to Safdarjung Hospital since we do not even have ventilators. In the midst of all this conversation, the child died. Dr Ashish and nurse Anuradha from our hospital went there. Dr Ashish was beaten up due to which he fled and the family took the nurse hostage.

The CMO in his statement cleared that it was due to the issue of availability of beds, the Safdarjung Hospital claimed that they did not have a ventilator bed. “When the staff of Safdarjung Hospital told the family of the child that you have to give consent that if something happens to the child, you will be responsible for it because we are going to shift the child to the general ward. They were not ready to give consent and in the meantime, the newborn collapsed,” he added

The complaint has been registered for this matter at Safdarjung Enclave police station. Police are investigating into the matter. However, the case has not been registered yet. Reportedly, the family members of the newborn baby were not ready to release the nurse even after the repeated efforts made by the hospital management. However, the nurse was released as soon as the police arrived at the spot after three hours.

So one can see how negligence has taken the life of the innocence. This is the duty and responsibility of Delhi Government too to take care of the conditions of Hospitals. Since the world is evolving every day, but we lack one or the other thing. The world is facing the worst right now. And on the other hand, the government failed to provide even the basic Healthcare needs to its netizens. If this incident is not enough to know the failures, then we need to ready ourselves to witness the worst.
