Serial maternal deaths in a tertiary care hospital: some questions
Between February 13 and March 18, 2011, a total of 18 women lost their lives while admitted in Umaid Hospital and the MG Hospital, Jodhpur, for medical management of their pregnancies. The majority of these women were from villages and all were from weak socio-economic backgrounds. Two of them belonged to families identified as being below the poverty line. Of the 14 women who died in February, eight delivered through lower segment caesarean section. Four underwent hysterectomy. One also had emergency surgery to stop excessive internal bleeding.
There are currently no refbacks.
