Hà Nội’s People’s Committee on Wednesday urged the city’s police department and Department of Health to investigate the death of an eight-month-old on January 23.

The child was allegedly mistakenly injected by a nurse at Đông Anh General Hospital.

In a document sent to relevant authorities, chairman of the committee Nguyễn Đức Chung asked directors of the city’s Police Department and Health Department to clarify the case of the newborn, who was mistakenly injected on January 15.

On the same day, the baby girl was hospitalised for coughing and diarrhoea with fever. She was diagnosed as suffering from diarrhoea and a sore throat, and was treated accordingly.

However, on that night, Hoàng Thu Trang, a nurse from the hospital, mistakenly injected the baby with kali-chlorid instead of letting her drink it. The baby turned pale, and her heart began beating fast after the injection.

She was immediately rushed to Saint Paul Hospital, but suffered from brain death and died eight days later.
