Baby wrongly declared dead: Max Hospital loses licence

The boy's shocked grandfather Praveen Malik told CNN that they noticed "some movements" inside the bag containing the babies' bodies.

"Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh had become a habitual offender, we had no option but to cancel their license", news agency ANI quoted Jain as saying.

In the licence cancellation order, which came after a three-member panel submitted a report to Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, the government has stopped the hospital from admitting any new patient and put a stop to all outpatient treatment services and laboratory testing on its premises with immediate effect.

According to the government, indoor patients already admitted in the hospital would be given a choice by the hospital to continue treatment there or be transferred or shifted to another hospital of their choice. This was due to a government panel finding that the hospital did not adhere to norms regarding newborn infants.

The Delhi government on Friday cancelled the license of Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh with immediate effect for alleged medical negligence after one of the twins born in the hospital was found alive after being declared dead by the doctors. It had come to light that a newborn was wrongly declared "dead" by the hospital after which the Delhi government initiated an inquiry into the incident.

The baby was later admitted in a clinic in Pitampura, but died on Wednesday.

Jain also mentioned that, "Max Hospital is a habitual offender and three notices were served earlier to it". We have been protesting outside the hospital demanding action for last few days.

Max Healthcare, the company that owns the hospital, criticised the ruling. "This will compound the shortage of hospital facilities in the National Capital". However, the cancellation of licence is too harsh a step.
