A court in Brno on Friday ordered a hospital in Třebíč to pay record compensation of 3.5 million crowns to the husband and children of a 36-year-old woman who died there in 2006 during the delivery of her third child. The court upheld a review of the case by the Health Ministry which said the woman died of internal bleeding the doctors failed to notice. Criminal proceedings against the doctors had been dropped but the judge said on Friday that based on the new verdict, charges against the maternity ward’s head doctor might be raised again.
