Scandal at Norwegian Hospital
The Norwegian television channel, Tv2 has reported that a pregnant Chechen asylum seeker lost her baby due to the carelessness of doctors at the Gjøvik town hospital.
Taus Khakimova is a Chechen asylum seeker in Norway. She was pregnant and expecting a baby in the next 10 weeks. However, she felt that something was wrong with her and thus went to the hospital. She was examined by doctors who told her that everything was normal and sent her home.
“Two days later, I was on the toilet when I discovered that the umbilical cord had come out. Scared, I ran back to my room and passed out. On the way to the hospital, my contractions became more powerful. In the maternity ward, they told me that the child had already died,” said the heartbroken mother, while in tears.
Now, the case is under investigation by the Oppland county medical service. “We are awaiting the reports from all sides, and we have invited the family for a conversation,” said Officer Tarald Hetland.
The hospital’s authorities claim that they have not done anything wrong.
