DFNsP spokesperson Dana Kamenická has confirmed the authenticity of the report for the TASR newswire.

“The Children’s Faculty Hospital and Policlinic is aware of action taken by the National Anti-corruption Unit at one of the hospital’s departments,” reads the hospital’s statement, as quoted by TASR.
