Nurse causes 'catastrophic injury to baby during delivery'

Share

The nurse was allegedly left holding the baby's torso while its decapitated head was left inside the mum's body in the reported horrific incident on January 6.

A nurse at a government hospital in Rajasthan, delivering a baby, pulled so hard at the tiny body that it split and the head was left in the womb.

The mother, who has been named by local media as "Dikhsha Kanwar" is reportedly fighting for her life in hospital following the incident.

In June previous year, a British gynaecologist was found guilty of medical misconduct, after she accidentally decapitated an unborn baby in the womb.

When he thought something was wrong, he then referred her to another hospital in Jodhpur.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan State Human Rights Commission has taken cognizance of the incident and sought a report from Jaisalmer SP and CMHO, ANI reported.

"The reports from the Ramgarh health centre stated that delivery had been done". Despite being a high-risk case, the two nurses on duty-Amritram and Jhunjhar Ram-tried to deliver the chid of seven-month pregnant Deeksha without the presence of a doctor.

The woman was then taken to Jawahar Hospital for further treatment after staff said there had been a "complication" with the birth. The police, acting on the woman's complaint, questioned the male nurse about the botched-up procedure.

After she was transferred, doctors performed the operation during which they found the baby's head in the womb and informed the woman's family. Chief medical health officer, Jaisalmer, Dr B L Bunkar said, "I visited Ramgarh and investigated the matter".

However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.
