Present times do not seem particularly friendly to medical profession. Despite pursuing such an honourable profession and calling, lawsuits against the doctors, claims for damages, as well as media reports on the instigation of the criminal proceedings against them seem to abound nowadays.
The media actually seem to be on the forefront of fuelling negative public sentiment. There are some very aggressive law firms which even "specialize" in the pursuit of legal proceedings against medical professionals. The Patients' Ombudsman focuses on giving support to the patients only. Doctors are permanently exposed to the actions undertaken by the dissatisfied patients or various law enforcement agencies, and very often have to address lots of obviously ill-founded allegations.
Our firm has noticed this problem and intends to offer tangible legal assistance aimed at ensuring due legal comfort in this domain for all medical professionals.
