A four-day-old baby girl died in Uttar Pradesh's Bareilly after being shuttled from one wing of the hospital to another.
The girl born at a private hospital on June 15 had difficulty in breathing after which her parents brought her to the government hospital in Bareilly.
Her family alleged they were made to run from one wing of the hospital to another for over three hours due to which the infant died.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Wednesday ordered the suspension of a doctor and departmental proceedings against another after reports of negligence in attending to an infant at a government hospital in Bareilly surfaced, officials said here.
The Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) of the men's wing at the government hospital, Dr Kamlendra Swaroop Gupta, was suspended after the death of the four-day-old girl, an official release stated.
Departmental proceedings have also been ordered against Dr Alka Sharma, CMS, women's wing.
"A critically-ill child was brought to the men's wing of the hospital, where paediatricians were available. Instead of stabilising the child, her family was sent to the women's wing, from where the child was sent back," officials said.
