Legal Aspects Of Inappropriate Provision Of Medical Care

Abstract

The article deals with the problem of human health in the focus of criminal liability. Special attention is paid to related crimes in the field of inappropriate provision of medical care to a patient. The existing law enforcement practice in investigation of crimes in the field of inappropriate provision of medical care faces certain problems. The authors point to this provision, give examples of existing law enforcement practice, analyze them, draw their conclusions based on the analysis, comparing these conclusions with theoretical provisions. Authors believe that in order to resolve the issue of inadequate medical care to a patient in a detailed way, it is necessary to introduce into the Criminal Law of the Russian Federation a norm that establishes criminal liability for improper provision of medical care to a patient resulting in the infliction of serious bodily harm, death of the patient or other consequences. According to the authors, the introduction of a single standard fixing the responsibility of the guilty persons for improper provision of medical care to the patient will increase the effectiveness of the investigation of crimes of this category, as well as solve the problem of delimiting related elements. The correct identification of the signs of a crime is fundamental and it is not only for those who carry out the investigation, but even probably of greater importance for those who will be brought to justice.
