PALAKKAD: R Rajmohan Nair, MD of Thangam Hospital in Palakkad, said in a press conference that there was no lapse on the part of the hospital authorities in the incident in which a mother and baby died soon after delivery.

"The umbilical cord got entangled around the baby's neck. Although the baby was taken out, did not cry. The baby was then treated in the MICU with the help of a paediatrician. However, the child could not be saved," he said.

The authorities also denied the allegation that the baby's body was buried without informing the relatives. "The baby's body was handed over to Aishwarya's cousin Reshma. We have the documents signed by Reshma. Aishwarya suffered internal bleeding within half an hour of giving birth. Medications and treatments were given to reduce the bleeding. However, it could not be controlled. Following this, we informed her relatives that surgery was required. We had obtained permission from the relatives for this," hospital authorities said.

"As we were not able to stop the bleeding through surgery, we removed her uterus to save her life. She was then shifted to the intensive care unit. However, she could not be saved as her various organs stopped functioning," authorities added.

Meanwhile, IMA Palakkad President Dr NM Arun said that the hospital was not at fault in the incident and provided adequate treatment to Aishwarya.
