Sources report that Bundang Cha Hospital hid the truth about the death of a newborn for the last 3 years.
The Cha Hospital in Bundang started off with gynecology and expanded its services. It has a reputation for being one of the best hospitals for women in the country.
Three years ago, hospital reportedly dropped a newborn while delivering, causing the death of the child a few hours later. It was reported as a death from disease.
According to the report, the medical team dropped a newborn who was born through C-section in the year 2016. The child slipped and fell to the floor while the doctor was moving the child during delivery. The child hit his head and was taken to the for treatment, but died a few hours later. The hospital hid the fact that the child was dropped from its parents and reported the death as death from disease.
A death due to other causes require autopsy. Therefore, an autopsy wasn't performed on the child because it was reported as a death from disease. Right after delivery, the child showed a fractured skull and bleeding in the x-ray taken by pediatrics, but the hospital hid this fact from the parents, too. The medical records of the dead child have been partly removed and speculation of a systematical cover-up is circulating.
The Seoul District Police are investigating this case. This department has been investigating allegations of professional negligence, criminal escape, and destruction of evidence on the Bundang Cha Hospital medical team since last year.
The hospital says, "The physician must have determined the death of a child as a combination of diseases as it was a high-risk, premature infant in seven months of pregnancy. However, it was wrong of the hospital to not have informed the parents of the accident".
Bundang Cha Hospital says it will take stern measures against officials inside the hospital, holding them responsible for violating hospital policy, if the police investigation confirms there was a cover-up.
Some say there may be more cover-ups like this. They also criticize that the Han Ye-seul scandal that occurred last year was only dealt with by the media because she's a celebrity and the hospital quickly admitted to its faults but that wouldn't be the case of a helpless civilian.
