Three AIIMS doctors receive a month’s suspension over pregnant nurse’s death

The Delhi Medical Council has rapped AIIMS for hiring a doctor not registered with the state council.

Neighbourhood News Desk: Three resident doctors are being held guilty of negligence, leading to the death of a pregnant nurse at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), the Delhi Medical Council (DMC) has struck the names of two resident doctors from the state medical register for a month.

Council has also asked its West Bengal counterpart to do the same for the third doctor who is registered with it. By law, the doctors cannot practice medicine without their names on the medical register. January 2017, nurse Rajbir Kaur was admitted to AIIMS with full-term pregnancy. While under observation, the foetal heartbeat dropped and she was taken for an emergency surgery. She had a cardiac arrest on the table and died 16 days later of multi-organ failure and severe blood infection.
