Independent inquiry into baby's death

AN independent investigation has been launched into the death of a five-month-old baby girl at Nanjing Children's hospital, today's Yangtse Evening News reported.

The baby's parents had blamed her death on a doctor who they said played online games instead of providing emergency treatment, the newspaper said.

An earlier investigation by the health bureau found that the doctor had provided appropriate treatment to the baby although he had underestimated the severity of the illness. It denied the doctor was playing an online game at the time, and the doctor has been suspended from his job.

The baby died on November 4 after being admitted for an eye infection to the Jiangsu Province hospital.

The new inquiry will be conducted by four medical officials, five journalists, a Netizen, a computer professional, two provincial-level medical experts and a neighborhood dispute mediator, according to Ding Haiyang, the health bureau's Party secretary.
