The neonatology unit at SSKM hospital is one of the most reputable in the state. Sources at the neonatology wing said the death had nothing to do with the warmer. They argued that all the tests conducted on the infant had suggested that she was born with some metabolic disorder.
“Despite repeated attempts, we could not save the baby because of certain medical complications. The inquiry will reveal the facts,” said a source in SSKM.
The complaint follows the death of two infants at Medical College and Hospital Calcutta on November 21. They too died due to excessive heat from their warmer.
