Panel report claims Max Hospital guilty

Newborn baby wakes up at own funeral after being pronounced dead by doctors

The Max Hospital in Delhi has sacked two doctors

Also the bodies were handed over without written instructions.

"This baby was one of the twins delivered on 30 November morning".

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case yesterday found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.

Under fire, Max Healthcare had chose to terminate the services of two doctors allegedly involved in the case of a premature baby being wrongly declared dead, the group said in a statement.

On Sunday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said there should be a legal framework to check "open loot" and "criminal negligence" by private hospitals, in the wake of the premature baby being wrongly declared dead by a city-based private hospital.

Police said they are investigating the case and the hospital's treatment of babies.
