Yes, you can hold the doctor as well as the hospital liable for the damage done to your health. They will also be liable to pay compensation to you for the wrong done to you.
To complain against them, you can a file your complaint against the doctor to the Medical Council of India (MCI)
And you can also complaint to the concerned consumer court about the hospital about the negligence.
The points to be kept in mind while drafting the complaint should be as follows:
1. You should have all the medical records from the hospital which could be treated as a proof.
2. You should also get a second opinion regarding the medical negligence to strengthen your case.
Thereafter depending on your case and your losses you would be awarded appropriately by the court.
