In another incident of growing medical negligence in the country,  a woman gave birth to a baby girl outside a Civil Hospital in Gurgaon after allegedly being denied treatment. And the reason is that she didn’t have an Aadhaar Card. Now, a show cause notice has been issued to the Emergency Medical Technician. Now, a total of three people have been held responsible for the incident. “We have issued a showcause notice to an Emergency Medical Technician who had brought the patient to the hospital in the ambulance,” Dr B K Rajora, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

On February 9, a woman in the city of Gurgaon was forced to deliver her baby outside the emergency ward when she could not produce her Aadhaar card. The woman who has been identified as Munni Kewat, on Friday delivered her baby outside the emergency ward of a civil hospital here after the staff allegedly denied her admission into the labour ward for not carrying her Aadhaar card, her family members said. After the incident came to light, Gurgaon Chief Medical Officer Dr BK Rajora said a doctor and a staff nurse were suspended from duty. The patient was taken to the hospital by her husband and others after she experienced labour pain this morning. Her husband claimed he offered to give them the Aadhaar number as he was not carrying the physical card and said he would provide a copy of the card later.

The family then took the woman to the casualty ward, where they were denied entry. The entire episode was being filmed by other patients, but the hospital staff did not bother to come to her help. The staff allegedly came to Munni’s rescue only after she had delivered the baby and there was blood all over the floor. After her ordeal was over, the family members protested against the inhuman treatment meted out to the woman by the hospital staff following which a doctor and a nurse were suspended.
