Hearing Scheduled in malpractice case

Phnom Penh Municipal Court officials are scheduled to hear today from healthcare workers who are accused of negligence after the death of a woman during childbirth last month. The doctors and a midwife from the Cambodian-Russian Friendship Hospital have not been charged or arrested, but will be questioned on the case as part of a preliminary investigation, deputy court prosecutor Sok Roeun said. However, Sok Roeun said he wasn’t sure that the workers would show up. Phnom Penh resident Ban Rany, 23, died in early November while she was in the care of medical personnel at the hospital. Her husband, Ly Kok Meng, said she died after receiving the incorrect treatment – an injection of serum – for her stomach pain. Say Sengly, director of the hospital, said at the time that Ban Rany received the correct treatment but suffered an allergic reaction to it.
