Gorakhpur hospital deaths not caused by oxygen shortage: Central govt team

Alleged oxygen shortages kill 60 children at India hospital

Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday visited the family of victims who died in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das Medical College, and said that the state government must reveal the real reason behind the tragedy as the current investigation can not be trusted.

The panel has called for a full-scale investigation and pointed out mismanagement at the hands of two senior doctors. The petitioners also prayed for directions so that stern punishment was meted out to those held responsible for the deaths.

For 5 days children died in the hospital a Woman Raghav Das in the district of Gorakhpur.

He has been also accused of failing to inform the government of pending bill of Rs 69 lakh of oxygen supplier Pushpa Sales.

"Doctors are being made scapegoats", said Dr. Harjit Singh Bhatti, who heads an association of resident doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or AIIMS.

At least 30 kids died within 48 hours at the BRD Medical College's Nehru Hospital on August 10 and 11. The BRD Hospital had previously maintained that of the 34 babies who died at the neo-natal intensive care unit, 12 died of encephalitis. It was also pointed out that a lot of money is being spent on unnecessary things but the government is negligent towards the lives of innocent children.

The Minister of health of the state of Siddhartha Nath Singh denied that mass death has caused a lack of oxygen. "This means more supply of liquid oxygen tanks and indirectly the officials will earn more", said an officer on the condition of anonymity.

He said the team led by the state's chief secretary was probing the deaths in the Gorakhpur hospital.

According to sources, an inquiry report submitted by Gorakhpur District Magistrate Rajeev Rautela into the tragedy, in which more than 70 children have died, has found the company supplying oxygen guilty of negligence.

The minister said that hospitals and community health centres in the area are being provided all necessary facilities so that they are well equipped and patients do not have to run to BRD medical college.
