very saddened. how could the hospital discharge the babies while they were still underweights? Didnt the hospital said that the babies will be let to go home once they have attained a minimum weight of of 2.5kg as recommended?

The pain of giving a birth is very tough and to triplets is so excruciating. Mwawalakwira abale athuwa. At least if only the excruciating pain the… Read more »

I agree totallu with ‘Bystander’, why were they discharged in that condition? Negligence of duty could be one of the reasons! Who are the DHO and Matrons for the hospital? Total shame

Why were they discharged when they were known to be underweight? That’s fatal negligence on the part of the hospital

I totally agree with u sir. Last week we heard the hospital officials saying they will discharge the children once they reach 2.5kgs. Now we hear they were underweight and discharged. If i was the parent i’d sue the hospital and we all have the proof. This is so bad,instead of helping the kids to live,they helped in killing.
