A week after the death of a 45-day-old infant,who died due to alleged delay in treatment and negligence on the part of the doctors at the Government Multi Specialty Hospital,Sector 16,the inquiry officer,Dr Bhalla,is yet to submit a fact finding report in the incident.

On February 9,a 45-day-old infant boy died at the Government Medical Specialty Hospital,Sector 16 hospital when he was brought in by his parents Ladoo and Sudha Tiwari,after the child suffered a bout of vomiting. The parents alleged that the baby died as the doctors attended to him about 20 minutes after they reached the hospital.

According to sources in GMSH-16,the inquiry officer submitted an incomplete report on Wednesday without taking the complete viewpoint of the parents and the family members of the deceased.

The father of the baby,Ladoo Tiwari,gave a written representation to the Medical superintendent Dr Rajiv Vadhera in this regard. Speaking with Chandigarh Newsline,Ladoo Tiwari,said,“I am not satisfied with the inquiry and my statement was not recorded. If I do not get justice here,I will approach the higher authorities in UT administration,” he added.

Tiwari said,“When I reached the hospital I immediately went to the emergency department. The doctors in the emergency ward asked me to go to the opposite side. They gave me a run-around and no doctor was available.

Finally,when a doctor saw my child and inserted a pipe in him,he said that he was dead. I was surprised because my child was healthy just an hour ago.”

Incidentally,the day the child died,he was administered a DPT injection,polio vaccination and Hepatitis injection at the ESI dispensary in Ram Darbar.
