Two newborns, burnt in Giulesti Hospital blaze, discharged

Two of the newborns who were severely burnt in last month’s blaze at the Giulesti Maternity Hospital were discharged yesterday, after spending 30 days in the intensive care ward of the ‘Gri­gore Alexandrescu’ Chil­dren’s Hospital. “They are two twin brothers, who weighed between 1,800 and 2,200 grams at birth. The babies are in good health and their burns have almost hea­led. These were the first babies brought at the Gri­gore Alexan­drescu Hospital, and now they are discharged from hospital, as they both weigh over two kilograms and are fed naturally,” doc­tors explained. Three babies are still under intensive care, at the same hospital. On August 16, eight newborns were rushed to the intensive care ward of the ‘Grigore Alexandrescu’ Hospital, badly burnt in the blaze at the Giulesti Maternity. Three babies died on the spot, another survived only hours after being rescued, and another one passed away 27 days after the blaze. During this interval he was in a very serious condition and had to be mecha­nically ventilated. The Sector 6 Court decided, yesterday, that Florentina Cirstea, the Giulesti Maternity nurse investigated on charges of accidental killing and injury in the case of the August 16 fire, should remain in custody for another 30 days.
