According to report, Monica Palomino who gave birth to a premature baby last Saturday after 25 weeks of gestation lost her baby on monday.
However, due to pressure mounted on her by security officers at Lima’s Sergio Bernales hospital, she had to take the dead baby home till she could get a birth certificate.
Palomino speaking to ATV television said the hospital didn’t give her time to prepare the paper work for her dead baby so she resorted to putting the corpse in her refrigerator.
“They gave me my son when I was discharged. He’s in the refrigerator in my house because they did not give me the time to do the paperwork for his death certificate
“The woman in charge of the gynecology department did not want to let me leave the hospital if I didn’t take my baby. My baby was wrapped in a diaper.
Hospital director Julio Silva said Wednesday it would investigate the woman’s complaint, because he said the security guards had broken all the hospital’s procedures.
“I assume full responsibility. What should have been done is wait in the mortuary for the death certificate to be issued, to then be able to remove the body,” Silva told reporters.
