Description
Summary:The study reviews the regulation of patients’ rights from the time of the civil rights movements of the 1960’s and 1970’s until the recent developments in Hungary. First, it deals with the necessity of the regulation of patients’ rights and the tendencies in their progress, and also analyses the doubts that arise in connection with patients’ rights approaches. Examining the changes in domestic regulations, it explains the role of medical ethical norms and also those ethical and legal roles that led to the codification of the Hungarian patients’ rights. With reference to analysing the period since the endorsement of the Health Act (1998), it points out the role of the Constitutional Court and the actions of the parliamentary commissioners in forming the prevailing regulations of patients’ rights. It gives full details of the place of the patients’ rights regulation in the legal source hierarchy, the force of patients’ rights, and it describes the connections between patients’ rights and the duties of health care providers. The paper classifies the nine patients’ rights identified in the Law as three groups and explores the everyday practice in connection with the enforcement of each identified patients’ right. It reports on the knowledge of patients’ rights and the experiences on their enforcement. Finally, it summarizes own teaching experiences and outlines the prospects that give hope that people’s, citizens’ and patients’ rights are respected and enforced.
