Brain Defect boy Compensated for Medical Error

A 16-year-old boy whose brain damage at birth has turned him into a virtual vegetable has finally won compensation from the doctors his parents hold guilty, but that is of// little use to him.

The National Consumer Dispute Redressal (NCDR) forum has ordered the Cosmopolitan Hospital here and two doctors to pay Rs.1.1 million ($24,300) to the parents of Chakkara alias Naveen Thomas, holding them responsible for medical negligence. The money was given away last month.

"Two days later, by noon Geetha delivered Chakkara, little realizing that his days of misery were to begin."

For three days the newborn did not cry nor did he suck milk. And Thomas felt the doctors were not responding adequately to his and his wife's misery.

"I felt it was getting out of hand. I asked for the case sheet. After a while I grabbed the case sheet and the hospital referred my baby to the Government Medical College Hospital. After a lot of checkups we were told that my son's brain cells have been damaged because of breath asphyxia caused due to the delay in delivery," said Thomas, a bank manager.

After 45 days at the government hospital, Thomas and Geetha returned with their baby, knowing well that he w
