The Chennai Corporation maternity hospital in Shenoy Nagar is battling serious charges of medical negligence following a death of a woman post-delivery.

As per reports, victim, Kavitha, 26-year-old was admitted to the Corporation hospital with labour pain around 4 pm on Thursday. Following the birth of a healthy baby of 2.5 kg, profuse bleeding started in the woman.

Though the team comprising of two maternal maternity assistants and helper Shanthi tried their best to stop the flow of blood, they had to shift Kavitha to the Kilpauk Medical College (KMC) Hospital.

Defending the charges that no doctor was present at that time, a Senior Medical Officer claimed,” In this case, Dr. Mythili was present by the bedside supervising, while the ayah Shanti and two maternity assistants attended to the delivery “.

Deciphering the sensitivity of the case, helper Shanthi was suspended and memos were sent to the other two maternal assistants under the inquiry conducted the Deputy Commissioner of the Corporation.
