JAIPUR: Three doctors of a government hospital were suspended after a pregnant woman was denied admission and had to deliver the baby near the gate of the hospital. The incident happened on Wednesday at Kanwatia Hospital in Rajasthan. Three resident doctors of the hospital identified as Kusum Saini, Neha Rajawat and Manoj were suspended by the hospital authorities.

After the news grabbed headlines, additional chief secretary in charge of health education Shubhra Singh told the media that a committee has been formed to conduct a detailed inquiry into the incident. The investigation revealed that the incident happened due to serious negligence and insensitivity from the side of the doctors on duty on that fateful day. Shubhra clarified that the doctors were suspended following this. A show cause notice was also issued to the hospital superintendent Dr Rajendra Singh Tanwar for supervisory negligence in the case.

A similar incident happened in Haryana's Ambala in last January. A woman had to give birth in a cart selling vegetables due to the negligence of the hospital authorities. A man had taken his wife of Mohali in Punjab, suffering from labour pain, to the hospital. He had asked for a stretcher to take her inside but the hospital refused to provide one. Meanwhile, she had to give birth in a cart parked nearby.
