Hospital horror continues in MP: Infant dies after routine vaccination, body bitten by ants in mortuary

In an appalling incident, a 3-day-old baby girl who died after being administered a vaccine in a government hospital was allegedly bitten by ants in the mortuary of the hospital in Indore.
The newborn died on Monday morning after being administered medicine in the district hospital.
As per initial reports, the poor family had to wait till afternoon and in the meantime the body was being bitten by ants in the mortuary of the hospital.
However, there was a confusion over postmortem of the body. Finally, the body was sent to MY Hospital for postmortem in the evening.
This is not the first time time when such incident of callous attitude of staff in hospital in Indore came to light. Last week, two children died following wrong supply of anaesthetic nitrous oxide instead of oxygen in MY hospital, the biggest state-run hospital in Madhya Pradesh.
The high-level investigation team constituted to probe the death of two children, who were administered an anesthetic agent instead of oxygen at the Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore, will submit its report within two days to Madhya Pradesh government.
“The probe report is in the last leg of preparation and we will submit it to the state government within the next two days,” head of the five-member team constituted by state government, Dr Shashi Gandhi, said.
The team comprises an anaesthetist, a pediatric surgeon, a paediatrician and a chief engineer of PWD.
One-year-old Rajveer died on May 29, two days after he was given an anaesthetic agent, nitrous oxide, instead of oxygen while undergoing a surgery at the state-run hospital.
Two days ago, Ayush (5) died during a hernia surgery after being given the anaesthetic agent instead of oxygen.
The inquiry found out that there had been a confusion, due to which the pipe which was supposed to provide oxygen, instead supplied the anaesthetic.
An FIR was registered against a technician of a private company which looked after the piping system in the operation theatre of the hospital.
