Hospital blamed for newborn’s deformities
    2017-December-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A BABY girl has been born with deformities at a Longgang hospital after the mother stayed in the hospital for half a year to prevent a miscarriage, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported Thursday.

A Shenzhen resident, surnamed Liu, said his 32-year-old wife, who got pregnant earlier this year, received treatment at Longgang Maternity and Child Healthcare Hospital between April 22 and July 17 due to her risk of abortion. She was hospitalized again Aug. 10 to prevent a miscarriage after she was diagnosed with cervical insufficiency and vulvovaginal candidiasis.

Liu’s wife gave birth to a baby girl at the hospital Nov. 11. To their surprise, the girl was born with deformities. “She couldn’t close her eyes. She has no ears and her arms and legs are crooked. There is a hole beside her tailbone,” Liu said, adding that he couldn’t bear to describe how the baby looked to his wife as he was worried that she wouldn’t be able to take it.

Liu said he wanted to know why the hospital hadn’t discovered anything abnormal about the baby even though his wife was hospitalized for several months before giving birth.

According to the hospital, Liu’s wife had received an NT test to screen for Down’s syndrome as well as a grade-I ultrasonic check to measure the biological status of the fetus at the hospital.

The hospital said Liu’s wife hadn’t received a grade-II ultrasonic check at the hospital to screen for fetal deformities, because she told the doctors that she had received the ultrasonic check at another hospital, although she couldn’t provide the medical report.

According to the hospital, doctors had told Liu and his wife that the ultrasonic check couldn’t discover all fetal dysplasia and deformities. Several reports and written records issued by the hospital between August and October showed that Liu and his wife were informed of the possibility that the fetus might have dysplasia and deformities.

Longgang’s health and family planning bureau launched an investigation into the case Nov. 30, after Liu reported the case to the bureau. A spokesperson for the bureau said further investigation will be carried out to verify if the baby’s deformities are related to the diagnosis and treatment given by the hospital.

The hospital said it will cooperate with the bureau’s investigation and the result will be made public once the investigation is done. (Zhang Yang)
