Staff negligence: Infant dies due to ‘blower heat’ in Pant hospital, probe ordered

Srinagar, Feb 4 (UNI) Due to the negligence of the hospital staff, a new-born female baby was allegedly burnt to death due to blower heat in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of GB Pant Hospital on Sunday.

Meanwhile, after attracting sever criticism from all sections of society, including from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti, authorities have constituted a five-member committee and ordered an investigation into the death of the infant at the only children’s hospital in the valley.

The family of the new-born said the infant, who was born at a private hospital in the summer capital, Srinagar, had developed some complications following which she was taken to GB Pant Hospital.
However, they alleged due to negligence on part of doctors and paramedical staff of the hospital the baby was burned to death. “We want thorough probe in the incident and a stern punishment to the culprits so that such criminal act is not repeated,” they said.

The Postgraduate Department of Paediatrics, Government Medical College Srinagar on Monday ordered an investigation into the death and constituted a five-member committee, which has been asked to submit its report within 48 hours.

“In reference to the Medical Superintendent GB Pant hospital, Srinagar letter no GBP/11049 dated 04/02/2019 an inquiry committee is hereby constituted to investigate the complaint,” the order by GMC Srinagar read.

“The committee thus constituted shall submit its report within 48 hours positively,” it added.

Reacting to reports about the death, Ms Mehbooba said there are no words enough to condemn the criminal negligence at GB Pant hospital, where a new born baby was allegedly burnt to death. “Hope an exemplary punishment is given to the culprits responsible for this horrific incident so that no other child meets this kind of fate,” Ms Mehbooba, who is former chief minister of the state, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
