The official also added that the Disciplinary Council of the Southern Region “evaluated the five or six cases that there were about the doctor in question and, as a whole, applied the sanction of expulsion that was later ratified by the Superior Council.”

In that month of October, on the 18th, the President of the Order of Doctors, Miguel Guimarães, announced that he was going to file a complaint with the Southern Regional Disciplinary Board on this case and “urgently request the opening of a process.”

Four days later, the obstetrician informed the president that he had decided to suspend the performance of ultrasound scans during pregnancy until the conclusion of the processes being analyzed by the Southern Disciplinary Council, which on that day determined the preventive suspension of the doctor for a period. six months.

The case of the faceless baby led to the opening of a survey of the Setúbal Hospital Centerto determine if all the procedures in the delivery of the baby were performed correctly.
