GMSH-16 orders internal probe into negligence; baby was already dead in womb when transferred to PGI
In yet another incident of shocking negligence, the doctors and paramedical staff of Government Multi Specialty Hospital, Sector 16 (GMSH-16) are in the dock. The baby whose mother was transfused wrong blood on Thursday died at the Post the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, (PGIMER).
GMSH-16 has constituted an internal inquiry into the negligence. This is the second such case of blatant negligence causing death of infants in the hospital this year. In a previous such case, a Bihar native Bulbul was made to wait in the queue for preparation of her registration card when she delivered a baby, whose head hit the floor and it died immediately.
"We are definitely looking into the circumstances that led to the wrong blood transfusion," GMSH-16 Deputy Medical Superintendent M P Singh said. " We have taken the statements from various people who were on the duty that day."
Thirty-year-old Suman Lata, wife of Desh Raj, a resident of Colony Number 4, was admitted through the OPD in GMSH-16 and was sent to the gynaecology ward on Thursday morning as she was expecting a baby. Suman, who was in her ninth month of pregnancy, with A positive blood group was given the blood which was requisitioned for a namesake of hers, who too was admitted in the same ward. Almost one B positive blood point was given to Suman. Her condition started deteriorating and as the doctors on duty found that the wrong blood was given to her, they shifted her to PGI immediately due to foetal distress.
In fact, doctors at GMSH-16 had no clue that they had transfused wrong blood to Suman Lata till her family members approached the doctors. The doctors deputed in the Gynaecology ward had sent a requisition for blood group B positive in the morning, for another Suman, who was also admitted in the same ward. Suman delivered a baby and was shifted to another ward.
