MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Health is looking into the recent kidnapping of a newborn from a Quezon City hospital, which may lose its license over the incident.

A woman who disguised herself as a doctor kidnapped the newborn baby of Ces delos Santos inside the Santa Teresita General Hospital.

"Malaki ang pananagutan ng ospital sa nangyari," delos Santos said. "Gusto kong maging matatag para sa kanya ayokong umiyak."

The DOH has already asked for an incident report from the hospital.

Officials say the hospital may lose its license if it is found guilty of neglect.

The DOH pointed out that it is the hospital's responsibility to take care of patients and to ensure their safety while they're confined.
