QUANG NGAI (VNS) — The family of a woman from Quang Ngai Province who died three days after giving birth at Quang Ngai General Hospital have accused doctors and nurses of negligence.

Last Thursday, Bui Thi Hiep, a 25-year-old pregnant woman from Nghia Hanh District, went into labour at just 37 weeks pregnant.

The prenatal diagnosis showed that Hiep was suffering from blood clots and elevated liver enzyme levels. Four hours later, she gave birth to a healthy baby, but suffered from serious blood clots and visceral deficiency.

She was moved to intensive care, but died two days later.

The victim's family said they were not informed about the complications before she gave birth, and have asked the hospital to give an explanation.
