Max case: DMC disciplinary panel hearing in early March
New Delhi: The disciplinary committee of the Delhi Medical Council (DMC) has decided to hear the Max hospital twin baby case early next month, a senior official said on Monday.
The case pertains to a baby boy being wrongly declared dead after his birth on November 30 by the upscale private hospital in Shalimar Bagh.
The other twin, a girl, was still-born. The infant boy died a week later at a nursing home in Pitampura.
"The case came up for hearing on February 16, but the complainant was not present. So, we have moved the date. We want all parties to be present when the hearing takes place. We have sent the communication to the aggrieved family and most likely the hearing would take place in the first week of March" DMC Registrar Girish Tyagi said.
On January 16, the case was put up before DMC's executive committee and then it was referred to the disciplinary committee.
"Last week, representatives from Max Healthcare and, the doctors and nurses involved in the case, came, and a brief meeting was held. But the hearing would only happen when the complainant is also present," Tyagi said.
