The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Raipur: A new­born died af­ter fall­ing off the labour ta­ble into a dust­bin within min­utes of de­liv­ery. The mother was left unat­tended by hos­pi­tal staff in an un­equipped labour room in Baikun­th­pur re­gion of Ch­hat­tis­garh’s Koriya dis­trict on Fri­day.

Baikun­th­pur dis­trict hos­pi­tal in-charge, Su­nil Ku­mar Gupta, told TOI, “It looks like a case of mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion and mis­un­der­stand­ing be­tween hos­pi­tal staff. The pa­tient was shifted to a new labour room which is yet to be equipped for de­liv­ery.”
