SHS Web of Conferences
The identification and assessment of risk factors are facilitated by law administration and enforcement. Decisions of the judicial authorities constitute one of the directions. In this regard, first, the analysis and generalization of judicial practice show the range of problems of various aspects of activities, and second, it allows forming a model of suppressing or minimizing legal risks. Sociological research conducted from 2008 to 2020 by the Department of Healthcare Organization and
... nization and Medical Law of the Regional State Budgetary Educational Institution of Additional Professional Education "Institute for Advanced Training of Healthcare Professionals" (Khabarovsk) revealed that these specialists had no idea about the number of litigations in so-called "medical cases", or about the amounts recovered on claims of patients to medical organizations of the Khabarovsk Territory. Meanwhile, having information on the quantitative and summary indicators of court cases, it is possible to adjust interaction with patients at both pretrial and trial stages. The study aimed to analyze and summarize judicial practice in these cases, to selectively examine defects that served as the basis for filing claims and had an impact on the amounts recovered, as well as to form practical recommendations for the prevention of legal risks in the activities of a medical organization, based on a regional model. The relevance of the problem of legal risks of medical activity is shown from the standpoint of analysis and generalization of judicial practice. The article provides a statistical analysis of court proceedings on claims of patients for compensation for material damage and moral harm to medical organizations subordinate to the Ministry of Health of the Khabarovsk Territory. A selective examination of the claims of patients is executed considering the impact on the reasons for legal recourse and the total amount recovered. Practical recommendations for regional healthcare institutions are annually formed and approved by the Minister of Health of the Khabarovsk Territory based on the results of the study.
