 Hospitals response to a premature infants abnormal development in Henan Province

On the afternoon of the same day, a staff member of Shangqiu health committee told the surging news that the process of babys medical identification and judicial identification (needs) will certainly be followed up (notification).

According to previous reports in the surging news, Mr. Xu of Shangqiu, Henan Province, said that his wife gave birth in September 2019 in the first peoples Hospital of Shangqiu. The doctor told him that the birth of the child was stillbirth, and asked him to sign the treatment plan for fetal stillbirth with the content of the stillbirth can be carried away by itself. Later, Mr. Xu got a yellow medical waste bag containing the fetus. When he left the hospital, he found that the fetus in the plastic bag was twitching, and then returned to the hospital for rescue. The child was diagnosed with brain injury.

A person in charge of the hospital said doctors had misjudged to a certain extent, Henan television reported. The head of Obstetrics and Gynecology said that the family members had signed the consent to refuse rescue before taking the child away. After receiving the child sent back by Mr. Xu, the medical staff found that the childs heartbeat was very weak.

Ding Jinkun, a lawyer from Shanghai Dabang law firm, pointed out that the above-mentioned incidents were caused by doctors misjudgment and treating premature infants as dead infants. In view of the fact that doctors perform their duties, the hospital should compensate the victim for the loss. According to media reports, the family members signed a placenta stillbirth treatment plan with the hospital before the operation, stipulating that the stillbirth should be carried away by the family members themselves. However, the baby delivered by the operation is not stillbirth, so the above-mentioned agreement has no room for application. The hospital should take good care of the baby as soon as possible.
