Negligence alleged in childbirth death

A MAN filed a complaint yesterday with local rights group Adhoc, accusing doctors at Kratie provincial hospital of negligence after his daughter died during a childbirth operation lasting over five hours. Chet Savon, 56, said doctors confirmed the good health of his daughter, 26-year-old Choeurn Sineth, three days before the December 25 surgery. Doctors should be made “responsible for their negligence”, he said. Hospital chief King Hong said doctors did their best to save the woman, but that “she was in too serious a condition”. Adhoc said the complaint had been passed on to local officials.
