Hos­pi­tals free to act in emer­gen­cies

China Daily European Weekly - - New Digest -

Hos­pi­tals will be ex­empted from re­spon­si­bil­ity if doc­tors per­formed emer­gency surgery be­fore they were able to se­cure con­sent from pa­tients’ rel­a­tives. A le­gal in­ter­pre­ta­tion, is­sued by the Supreme Peo­ple’s Court on Dec 13, clar­i­fies re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of hos­pi­tals when they have to solve med­i­cal emer­gen­cies but do not get agree­ments from pa­tients’ fam­i­lies.
