Doc worked for over 90 hrs for 17 babies

As Chennai reeled under the devastation caused by the deluge, a city-based woman doctor worked for 96 hours at a stretch to help deliver 17 babies at a private hospital here.

Dr Padma Priya camped at Apollo Speciality Hospital at OMR since last Friday to facilitate healthy delivery of 13 babies.  “Overall, 17 healthy babies were delivered here during the rain,” she said on Sunday.

She said to overcome the challenges, consultant gynecologists and pediatricians at the hospital decided to stay at the campus to ensure that the newborns and their mothers were safe and healthy.

“Despite financial problems  owing to dysfunctional ATMs, expecting  mothers and patients were given a warm welcome at the hospital and ambulances were deployed to bring in patients with emergency cases,” she added.

According to the doctor, ER and critical care surgeons,  including cardiac and other speciality surgeons, worked round the clock to ensure quality medical care was provided to the patients
