That doctor that you may have read about because she decapitated a baby during delivery qualified to become a doctor in India.
She’s now practicing her craft in Britain. National Health Service authorities have cleared her to go back to work following an incident in which she pulled a baby’s body off its head, presumably to kill more babies.
Grisly news about a decapitated baby recently made the rounds across social media. According to the report, a breech baby was decapitated when the child was delivered through a normal delivery.
The problem was that the baby was in the breech position, which meant that it would be coming out feet first if delivered normally. In such cases, C-section is the preferred method for breech babies as it poses the least amount of risk to the baby.
However, Dr. Vilvanathan Laxman decided to pursue a normal delivery, which resulted in the decapitated baby. She reportedly instructed the mum to push while she tugged at the unborn baby’s legs. The baby had a prolapsed cord, a common danger. Because the baby was fragile and pre-term, the force detached the legs, arms, and torso from its head.
The hospital suspended the doctor in the wake of the incident, and her case was heard last month in court.
But recently, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service cleared the doctor of serious misconduct and allowed her to go back to work.
When she initially faced the tribunal, Dr. Laxman shared that she didn’t opt for a C-section since she believed that it would pose a higher risk for the baby.
The tribunal didn’t agree with Dr. Laxman and found her actions to be negligent. But they did not deem this serious misconduct.
They said, “The tribunal was satisfied that throughout the attempted delivery of baby B, Dr. Vilvanathan Laxman believed that she was acting in both patient A’s and baby B’s best interests, and that she genuinely believed that proceeding with a vaginal delivery was the optimum course to take in the circumstances which existed at the time.”
The tribunal added that the doctor has expressed remorse about what happened. She also accepts full responsibility for the decapitated baby.
According to the tribunal, Dr. Laxman does not pose a risk to any patients, and they have allowed her to resume her practice.
Ah yes, remorse. That solves the problem, doesn’t it.
