Indore: A constitutional committee constituted to probe the death of two infants at MY Hospital submitted its report in Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday.

The court fixed next date of hearing in the case for next week.

Advocate Manish Yadav said that the probe report has been submitted in the court and argument on it would take place once its copy is obtained by all the parties in the case.

Two infants had died in the hospital in May after being supplied nitrous oxide instead of oxygen.

The incident had occurred due to cross connection of supply lines at OT of the medical facility.

A public interest litigation was filed in the case by Pramod Dwivedi alleging negligence on the part of hospital administration and seeking compensation for the family members of the deceased.

Besides, the PIL also demanded suspension of negligent hospital staff, a criminal case against people responsible for the incident.

The court had constituted a three member constitutional committee comprising a retired High Court judge, dean of medical college in Bhopal and a representative of government.

The committee on Monday submitted its report in the incident.

Counsel of the petitioner said, “Utmost care is taken at operation theatres as it directly deals with human lives. The OT at MY Hospital should have not been used without proper checks. The incident of cross connections clearly reveals negligence on the part of hospital administration and other respondents in the case.”
