A well-known hospital in Korea covers up the death of a newborn baby for 3 years


A well-known hospital in Korea is under fire for covering up the death a newborn baby.

According to a report by KBS News on the 14th, 3 years ago, a newborn baby was born in a well-known general hospital delivery room and the baby died in a matter of hours. The hospital explained that it was due to an illness but it turns out that the report was false. 

According to the report, in August 2016, a mother gave birth to a baby via c-section at the Bundang Cha Women's hospital after a 7-month term. The doctor slipped and fell while moving the 1.13 kg premature child and the baby died.  At the time, the hospital said that the reason was due to "complications from an illness". 

During investigation, the real facts about the cause of death were revealed and the hospital vice-chairman said, "It was definitely wrong not to have notified the parents of the true facts. We will take responsibility.  We are taking measures to prevent this in the future."

Police are still investigating the case and will proceed to prosecution once the investigation is complete.

    I feel for the parents. So dreadful to go into hospital with a live baby waiting to be born, only to go home with empty arms.

    It's every expecting parent's nightmare! Births should be celebrated with joy, nothing less. This hospital will be in deep bind for sure.

    Doctor slipped & fell - either medical staff screening lax or overworked environment, but being a well known general hospital, this OB-GYN cover-up/oversight is not forgiveable.
