Cy­cle-stand birth: Lens on doc­tor

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Gur­gaon: A ju­nior res­i­dent doc­tor, a staff nurse and an am­bu­lance staff are likely to face harsh ac­tion, even ter­mi­na­tion, in the case of med­i­cal neg­li­gence at Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, where a de­lay in ad­mis­sion forced a woman to de­liver at a cy­cle stand near the emer­gency ward last Fri­day.

The doc­tor, Dr Mo­hini, who was on duty when the 25-year-old woman in labour was brought to the emer­gency ward, and the staff nurse, Savita, who took the woman to get an ul­tra­sound test done, have al­ready been sus­pended. The district health depart­ment had taken the ac­tion af­ter pre­lim­i­nary probe for deny­ing an im­me­di­ate ad­mis­sion to the preg­nant woman and send­ing her for a test that was not cru­cial at that mo­ment.
