Reproaching Medical Disputes Management Act
Medical Disputes Management Act is going to start its legislation process. Its central principles is alternative dispute resolution to protect patient right with the use of medical mediation, simple evaluation, and mediation. In hospital medical mediation can settle down the disputes between physicians and patient’s family and also calmed down the emotional changes of both sides. Simple evaluation before mediation by going through the medical records can make patient’s family understand whether medical processes fulfill standard of care, instead of the reasonable physicians principle. If the medical records are incomplete, evaluators should decide the injuries of the patient avoidable or not. They also need to evaluate the legal responsibility of the hospital. Mediation can shorten the processes of lawsuit and even decrease the number of trial filed. Beside civil lawsuits, mediation should include criminal trials, either started by the prosecutors or patient’s family, whether patient survived or not.
