Two Pregnant Women Dies Due to Medical Negligence in UP

Two pregnant Dalit women died after they were allegedly thrown out of a state-run rural hospital in Uttar Pradesh by doctors and para-medical staff for not paying bribe. A case of criminal negligence has been registered against the erring medical staff.

The victims died on Wednesday night after they were asked to leave the hospital in Kanpur district just after their delivery.

"A prima facie case has been established against the hospital staff and stern action would follow against the erring staff," state principal health secretary Arun Kumar Misra told IANS here Friday evening.

The victims' families are demanding that the staff be booked for culpable homicide.

"Preliminary inquiry carried out by the state heath director confirmed the complicity of the doctors and hospital staff in forcing the two women out of the maternity ward, shortly after their delivery, leading to their death," he disclosed

Both the patients' families were understood to have paid Rs.500 to secure admission in the maternity ward, but their inability to fulfil the additional underhand demand of Rs.1000 within hours of the delivery led to the staff asking them to leave.

Mishra emphasised that "apart from exemplary punishment to those guilty in this case, we are now going to take fresh measures to curb such menace across the state".
