Police Commence Investigation into Death of Baby Debora

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Jakarta Police has started investigating the death of Tiara Debora Simanjorang, an infant who died after allegedly being turned away by Mitra Keluarga Hospital in Kalideres, West Jakarta.

“Based on information on social media, the Special Crime Unit has started an investigation [into the case],” Jakarta Police spokesperson Raden Prabowo Argo Yuwono said at his office today, Sept. 12.

Argo explained that the investigators have filed a report on the investigation. Currently, the investigators are digging information from the hospital and Debora’s family.

“After we gather witnesses and evidence, we will conduct a [case] presentation,” Argo added.

Before her death, Debora had a cold and was taken to the Cengkareng General Hospital. The doctor who treated the 4-month old baby gave her medicines to stop the cold. However, Debora’s condition worsened on Saturday, September 2.

The parents took her to Mitra Keluarga Hospital, and the doctor immediately gave her the first aid by conducting a suction. The hospital suggested her parents treat Debora in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and took care of the administrative affairs. However, since the hospital does not serve patients with health care and social security agency (BPJS) cards, they recommended Debora to be treated at a hospital providing such a service. The effort to find a hospital took a long time, causing the death of the infant.
