Stay on Max hospital licence cancellation extended till Apr 12February 08, 2018 23:58
An appellate body hearing the Max hospital twin death case today extended by two months the stay on a Delhi government order cancelling its licence in December, authorities said.
The stay will be in effect till April 12, the next date of hearing, they said.
The licence cancellation case pertains to the birth of a premature twin at the hospital in Shalimar Bagh on November 30 last year.
Both the babies were declared stillborn by the hospital, one of them wrongly, and handed over to the family allegedly in a polythene bag.
While the family was on its way to perform the final rites, they found that one of them (a baby boy) was still alive.
The case triggered an outrage, prompting the AAP government's Directorate General of Health Services to cancel the hospital's licence on December 8 for alleged medical negligence.
The upscale hospital group on December 13 had filed an appeal in the Financial Commissioner's court against the cancellation of the licence, which stayed the order.
