BAC LIEU — Bac Lieu general hospital has admitted fault in
the deaths of two baby twins earlier this month in the southern province.
The twin's mother, 30, gave birth prematurely on November 3,
but one twin, weighing 700g, had been dead in the womb for more than 20 days.
The second baby, weighing 1.6kg, died three days after birth.
Hospital staff had previously refused to admit her for care
when she thought there was a problem, telling her that a check-up proved she
was in normal health and the pregnancy was only 28 weeks, about four to five
weeks before the due date. — VNS
