Even as the eight-member committee is set to begin its probe into the death of nurse Rajbir Kaur, wherein five resident doctors of AIIMS are under the scanner for negligence, the resident doctors’ association has asked the administration to initiate proceedings against five nurses involved in the incident.  The RDA has written to the Director, AIIMS, seeking proceedings to be initiated against five nurses — three from the operation theater where the surgery was conducted and two from the labour room. The RDA has written to the Director stating that “responsibility of patient care” stands with the entire medical team, including the “paramedical staff”.
