A news item appeared a few days back – 38 infants have died in hospital in Kerala due to unhygienic conditions.
The Kerala CM makes the claim that these reports are baseless. His logic, people are still coming to hospital for delivery, so that proves that the conditions in the hospital are hygienic.
As a new Mom, the images of the little infants dead in the hospital was haunting. The CM’s claim left me outraged. I feel strongly for the parents who had to deal with the loss of their child, and then the apathy of the govt.
A panel has been created to review the reason for the deaths. As with all other panels, this one too will file a report that will probably go unnoticed..meanwhile, the loss of a newborn will always be with the parents, whatever the panel report is.
