Medical negligence: Woman delivers baby in toilet

In a bizarre incident, a Kerala woman had to give birth in the toilet of a hospital due to medical negligence. The incident happened at Kunnamkulam Taluk hospital in Kerala. The woman was rushed to the hospital after he experienced labor pain on Sunday. As there was no doctor physically available there, the woman was admitted and treated as per the doctor's advice via phone call. However, the authorities did not give much care to the woman and she was rather given a pain relief injection. When she was using the toilet, the baby came out much to her shock. The infant immediately suffered a severe infection. Soon, the infant was admitted to the intensive care unit and was later shifted to a private hospital as the condition worsened.

The woman's family came up with a complaint against the hospital authorities alleging medical negligence. As the family is suffering from a financial crisis, the woman's husband has made a request to the government to bear the cost of the treatment. The DMO has launched an investigation to the incident.
