The cleaner escorted the expectant parents out of the hospital
A pregnant Indian woman gave birth in a park after she was forced out of a hospital by a staff worker.
It was reported that the woman, a resident of Dhandari Kalan, Ludhiana, Punjab, had gone to the hospital after experiencing stomach pains.
However, when she arrived at the labour room, a cleaner reprimanded her and escorted her out of the labour room.
The woman’s condition then began to worsen. At that point, the pregnant woman was told to sit in the nearby park.
A short while later, the woman ended up giving birth to a premature baby in the park. The woman has been identified as Lalita while her husband has been named as Phoolchand.
After discovering that the baby was in poor health, hospital workers took the mother and child back inside.
Lalita was monitored by doctors after which she left with her husband. It was revealed that they feared the staff as a result of the incident.
The matter came to light on Tuesday, January 28, 2020. The civil surgeon ordered a report to be submitted by the hospital administration.
On the same day, Phoolchand approached the police and made a statement about the matter.
The civil surgeon ordered an internal investigation into the matter. During the investigation, they discovered that a cleaning lady was responsible for the negligence.
The cleaner was subsequently fired from the hospital.
Phoolchand explained to officers that he has been married to Lalita for ten years and they were expecting their first child.
Lalita was six months pregnant when she started to experience stomach pains.
Phoolchand took his wife to the hospital and made their way into the labour room. A cleaner was working there and told the pregnant Indian woman to leave the hospital.
The cleaner escorted the expectant parents out of the hospital where they protested.
After Lalita’s condition worsened, they were told to sit in a park.
Lalita’s condition continued to deteriorate and she later gave birth in the park.
When Lalita and the newborn were eventually taken inside the hospital, Phoolchand complained to the hospital administration as well as the police.
Civil surgeon Dr Rajesh Bagga asked for a report to be submitted and for an internal investigation to be conducted.
SHO Inspector Surinder Chopra confirmed that Lalita’s family have filed a complaint.
Negligence was revealed to be the primary factor and the cleaner was dismissed. Further action will be taken based on the written statement.
