Hospital admits error in death of twins

Update: November, 16/2012 - 09:56

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
