ORYOL, January 22. /TASS/. The governor of the central Russian city of Oryol, Vadim Potomsky, has suspended the work of the local perinatal center where eight newborns died in two weeks, the regional government’s press service said on Friday.
"The governor has decided to suspend the work of the regional perinatal center for preventive and sanitary activities," the press service said. "All patients who need medical assistance will be sent to other hospitals."
The local branch of the Investigative Committee opened a probe on Tuesday into the deaths of the newborn children, most of whom were born prematurely, and suffered from some abnormalities and pathologies.
However, the mothers of the newborns who died between January 3 and 18 have filed no complaints with the police about the center’s work.
The center’s chief doctor, Olga Pekhoto, was suspended earlier this week for the period of the investigation.
