Bribery has Claimed the Life of a Newborn in Madhya Pradesh

A newborn child in a government hospital in Madhya Pradesh allegedly died because his parents didn't have Rs.50 to pay the nurse who refused to tie the umbilical cord.//

Ram Milan, the father of the baby boy who died Tuesday, said he had taken his wife to the government hospital in Satna for a safe delivery. But fate had other things in store for him.

"The nurse on duty demanded Rs.50 for tying the umbilical cord. When I expressed helplessness, she left the child unattended and he died due to excessive bleeding from the cord," Milan told a television channel.

"It would have been better if I had taken my wife to a midwife. My child wouldn't have died then," he rued.

Reacting to the news, the hospital's civil surgeon Usha Soni told IANS over the phone: "We have come across the complaint of the deceased's father and an inquiry will be instituted to look into the matter."
