Gurugram , Seven employees, including the chairman and directors of a private hospital here, have been booked for alleged medical negligence causing a patient to suffer a miscarriage in June 2022, police said on Friday. The FIR against the seven members of the Cloudnine Hospital located at Sector 47 here was filed on Thursday following a report from a committee set up by the Chief Minister's Office which found negligence on the part of two doctors of the facility, they added.


Kids Clinic India Limited , the parent company of the hospital, has refuted the allegation, saying it is a "malicious and motivated attempt to tarnish the reputation of a leading mother and child care brand by deliberately reviving a fourteen-month-old case".


"We vehemently deny these allegations and remain committed to delivering quality care. We are in the process of seeking appropriate legal remedies," the statement added.


According to her complaint, Snigdha Bhushan, a resident of Sector 46 here, said she became pregnant with her second child in June 2022 and started consulting Dr Priyanka Yadav at a clinic in Sector 31 here. Based on Yadav's recommendation, Bhushan got admitted to Cloudnine Hospital on July 23, 2022 after she fell ill.


At the hospital, the woman was being treated by two doctors who gave her some medicine, following which she suffered a miscarriage, the complaint said.
