Omsk hospital was fined for the clumsy handwriting of a doctor


 

A resident of Omsk, who got into intensive care because of an illegible diagnosis written by a doctor, sued 100 thousand rubles from the hospital.
The 33-year-old woman filed a lawsuit against the attending physician, who made an unknown diagnosis. It is not known because even judicial experts spent hours deciphering the medical card as materials of the administrative case, Vesti reports.
After giving birth, a patient at the Tarsk District Hospital in Omsk started having complications. However, due to the unreadable handwriting of her attending physician, doctors could not figure out the simple diagnosis of appendicitis.
As a result of a lengthy graphological examination, the young mother was in intensive care.
Later, the woman filed a lawsuit against the Tara district hospital, which was later fined 100,000 rubles.
According to the judges, this is an unprecedented case in their practice, but they do not rule out that soon there will be many who want to follow the example of a resident of Omsk.
Medical lawyer Zhanna Altunyan: "In Russia, we often encounter the fact that patients cannot understand the handwriting of doctors and do not know what diagnosis they are given. Unfortunately, not every doctor in the district clinic can give the patient enough time to inform him about the disease, the diagnosis and the method of treatment to the extent that the patient needs. There is a key point in this issue - the only evidence for both the investigation and the courts is the medical card. s, the history of childbirth. Of course, the case that doctors, experts, not to mention the patients were not able to understand the written history and the diagnosis is shocking.
On the territory of the Russian Federation at the legislative level, it is not regulated anywhere that a doctor be fined for an unreadable handwriting.
Often when patients come to me as a medical lawyer. However, even to me, in the first place, it can be difficult for a medic to understand the handwriting of doctors. I study the whole history of the disease and, of course, it is very disappointing when something you cannot read - you have to speculate, guess.I repeat, as a medic.
I consider it necessary to adhere to some criteria. Let it be forms or regulations in electronic form - the patient is printed out an extract and he understands everything. In the case when everything is written completely unreadable, you need to punish. Let there be some minimized fine. If one doctor is once brought to justice for the fact that his handwriting is not readable not only by the patient, but also by the investigating authority, including the prosecutor's office, as well as by his colleagues, the second time he no longer wants to write an unintelligible medical history. In this case, he will make every effort so that anyone can read it. We need to make some amendments at the legislative level, sanctions regarding the doctor’s handwriting, since only with medical documentation can the patient be turned to the investigation and to the court.
