Gurugram: Denied entry for not having Aadhaar, woman delivers baby outside hospital

Gurugram: Denied entry for not having Aadhaar, woman delivers baby outside hospital”

Showing a lack of sensitivity, a Gurugram hospital allegedly denied admission to a pregnant lady for not carrying Aadhaar card forcing her to deliver a baby outside the emergency ward. Screaming and covered with shawls used as makeshift curtains, the woman was pitied by the passersby as she gave birth on the street while authorities made no attempt to admit her. She was admitted hours after her daughter was born. Both Munni and her daughter are reportedly healthy and recovering but the negligence by hospital authorities can not be ignored.

According to Munni's family, her labour pains started at around 9 am on Friday after which they called an ambulance. "When we reached there, the staff there asked for my wife's Aadhaar card for admission", NDTV quoted Arun Kewat, the woman's husband, as saying. "We were asked to produce Aadhaar and the process got delayed because of it, but we did not raise any objections", the woman told the Hindustan Times. "We have suspended them and conducting a probe into the matter". However, the family has decided not to file a complaint against the hospital authorities.

Munni does have an Aadhaar card and she remembered the number too, she did not carry it with her just then.

He then chose to go get a printout, meanshile asking the female relatives to get Munni help. "I was unable to get the document and, when I returned, they had even thrown her out, and she was sitting on the ground outside the hospital, giving birth", said Babloo. The husband said he had her Aadhaar number with him, but did not have a hard copy.

Dr Pradeep Sharma, principal medical officer of Civil Hospital, Gurgaon, said, "The woman reached the hospital with full labour pain and the gynaecologist sent her with a staff nurse for ultrasound as the woman didn't have any test reports of her pregnancy".

The couple had moved to Gurgaon's Sheetla colony "7 or 8 years ago" and have a 3-year-old son, who was born in their native village, Gurdin Pura, in Uttar Pradesh. Bablu, a daily wage labourer, offered Munni's voter ID card, but the staff insisted on an Aadhaar card and Munni was denied admission for the test thus delaying her delivery. They kept on asking for the Aadhar card. Then, as her family argued with CHC officials, the woman had given birth to a baby girl on the hospital floor.
