Patient Rights


In many cases, the health law gives the patient a serious right of choice and, in this case, a pregnant mother. Do we know our options? We live with our rights? Or are we lost in the paragraph section?

Patient rights are subsidiary
Acceptance of examinations, interventions
Tell us what we want!
What can a "patient" do?
What can the future bring?
Perhaps the most obvious problem is not knowing about patient rights. Anyone can be sick, have any contact with the health care system, so everyone should be aware that in many cases they are not required to accept any medical advice, they are not obliged to undergo any examinations and interventions, they have the right to . Of course, it is not intended for anyone to be opposed to a mother and the doctors who care for them. However, solutions that work for both sides can only produce results in dialogue.
Patient rights are subsidiary
Patients' rights take precedence over fundamental human rights: the right to life and health. This means that the patient must not make a decision that could endanger his or her health or physical health. The practical application of the law makes it almost impossible to determine with certainty what is at stake for the health and life of the fetus, newborn or mother. For example, according to one physician, early nutrition supplements endanger a child's health because they are prone to certain illnesses, while others may think that not doing so may lead to weight loss. Further complicating the situation is that in pregnancy and in the womb, health workers may find that the interests of the mother and the child (or the fetus) are in conflict. One of our readers found us having a similar problem:
"I was born with a cesarean section. This time I asked in vain, I was not allowed to be with the baby. The first day could not breastfeed, and even two days only, , just bubbly, and always lost my nipple. As my baby continues to get a glass of glass, there are no prerequisites for me to be breastfeeding. take us home.
Maternity: According to health law, the mother has the right to be placed in the same place as the newborn. The reason for limiting this right is that it puts the baby at risk for health or inflammation. But if the mother so requests, it should be possible to breastfeed in this case, not according to the hospital order, but according to the baby's needs. The baby has the right to the best nutrition, and this means breastfeeding. You may be asked to create conditions that contribute to successful breastfeeding. Leave the use of baby bottles, provide breastfeeding tools (such as the Optoplanet kit), and include breastfeeding advice. If the request is not fulfilled, we can contact the hospital's Patient Representative or request a placement in another institution on the basis of a free medical and hospital selection. If the parent does not endanger his or her baby's life, he or she may leave the house at his or her own risk. Endangering the life of a baby is a very vague concept. In this case, if the mother did not allow breastfeeding for breastfeeding success, she would not endanger the baby. But if you can only do this outside the walls of the hospital, you can easily leave the institution. "
Acceptance of examinations, interventions
By law, all examinations and interventions can only be performed with the patient's consent. Exceptions to this are interventions that fail to seriously endanger the life of the patient or others. There is no need for the pregnant mother's consent if she has reached the age of twenty-four and failure to act would put the fetus at risk. Unfortunately, the situation here is that neither the germany or the pediatric profession is unanimous in addressing the "danger state". Almost everyone in Hungary carries out a sectional examination of the mother's interest, even though in the Netherlands only women who are born are affected by fire. Another example is that newborns who are hospitalized after home birth are routinely given antibiotic treatment in Hungary, simply because they are not seen in the hospital. Generally, despite the fact that hospital birth means almost always an increased risk of infection compared to planned home birth.
Tell us what we want!
One week before the expected date of childbirth, Bgnes's doctor had fingered me in the midwife during an internal examination, but she had not advised my mother. In three days' time, she wanted to do it again, saying, "We'll scrub the lips a little bit because it's time is getting closer." hozzбtette, legkцzelebb not be so engedйkeny.

Maternity: It is important to know that you do not relieve your doctor of your obligation to inform if you are performing an intervention that the patient cannot refuse. The cow cannot legitimately have a pregnant mother who does not know if she has been replaced. In this case, Bobbes has the right to refuse the examination if the physician wants to combine it with a lull. It is not justified to use the finger on the mole during the pre-natal period, even in the exceptional case of a fetal or maternal cause, and there is no need for a cryopreservation. After the forty-one week, if there is no spontaneous birth, frequent fetal tone and function tests, as well as ultrasound flow tests, another examination of the fetal condition may be required. If these signs of aging are aggravated, reduced parental consent may be given, and no intervention is warranted, especially with parental consent. If you sign a paper with the patient that you do not want the exams done, that does not mean anything other than the doctor's defense, ”said our expert consultant, dr. Judit Boros Szsles-ngygyabszsz. The story ended well: the couple talked to the doctor. "We just had to open our mouth," the father said. The doctor upheld the request because the condition of the fetus and the results of the operation of the fetus were perfect. Therefore, he no longer urged the process.
What can a "patient" do?
You should only seek the assistance of someone who you trust to know how to do. In case of doubt, seek the opinion of a second, third physician. Unfortunately, this is not always possible in the elderly, especially if, for example, due to a special problem, birth can only be conceived in an institution with a premature birth. Creating a birth plan can also help to clarify the situation. If you talk to our doctor or a knowledgeable nurse in the first few months of your pregnancy, you may soon find out if you are in the air.
If you are already free, you cannot change your area, you have the right to complain about or maintain your health service. You must investigate your complaint and respond within ten days. All health services (from the family doctor to the clinic) have a patient rights representative whose main task is to help patients to enforce their rights. It is the duty of the service to communicate in a convenient location where and when to reach the representative. In practice, the majority of the representatives are expecting to be between the doctor and the patient. Nowadays, it is not uncommon for a mother to express her excuses, inquiries, and demands, even though most doctors would certainly be inclined to agree. If you are unable to validate your patients' rights, you will be eligible for civil and non-pecuniary damages. However, in Hungary there is little chance that any amount would be lost to a person, as the damage cannot be expressed in numerical terms. Who, for example, tells me how much damage the family has suffered if the institution has made it impossible for her to breastfeed her baby?
What can the future bring?
Dr. Edit Kecskeméti, lawyer, director of the Hungarian National Commission for UNICEF, talks about a possible future gateway.
The Patient Rights Act is currently a "rubber law", a doctor's subjective judgment of how long to allow a patient and when to consider a situation as a health risk. Unfortunately, this will be the case until the medical profession accepts standard written language for everyone. International recommendations, such as those of WHO, could provide a good basis for this, but are not always recognized by the domestic profession. From this point of view, the problem of breastfeeding is very present. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that it is in the best interests of the child to have access to adequate and healthy diets. This means breastfeeding in infancy. There is no unanimously accepted view in our country of how health can best support breastfeeding. Indeed, there is a need for more decisive action on the part of society: for NGOs to be more effective in representing patients' interests. If there were more than one case in front of a senior health executive, the current situation would probably change.
