Is a Physician Liable for Suicide of a Schizophrenic Due to Reducing the Dosage?

作者
中文摘要

思覺失調症患者從日本返回中國後自殺,患者遺族認為醫師未對預防患者自殺採取必要之措施,遂以醫師為被告提起損害賠償訴訟。一審法院判決被告有過失,須負擔部分賠償金,但二審法院推翻一審判決,認定雖然被告以減藥作為治療方針確有可能使患者的症狀惡化,但僅憑電子郵件中的症狀描述,不能認定被告可具體預測患者有自殺的危險性。因此,被告醫師並無義務採取必要措施來防止患者自殺,不須負損害賠償責任。

英文摘要

A schizophrenic committed suicide when returning from Japan to China. The descendants believed that the physician didn’t take any necessary precautions for the patient to prevent suicide, and filed a lawsuit for damages against the physician as defendant. In the first instance, the defendant was founded the faults and was required to pay a part of the compensation. However, the second instance overturned the judgment of first-instance and argued that although reducing the dosage of medicine as a treatment may have worsened the symptoms of the patient, it was impossible for the physician to predict specifically that the patient have a risk of suicide only by the descriptions of symptoms in Email. Therefore, the defendant was not obliged to take the necessary precautions to prevent the patient from committing suicide, and didn’t need to take the liability for the damage.
