Bahrain – Medical malpractice insurance is a necessity
Wednesday, 07 27 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Bahrain
The Bahraini MP Dr. Jamila al-Sammak confirmed that medical malpractice insurance became an urgent necessity in the Kingdom of Bahrain especially given that is has been implemented during a long period in advanced countries. Medical professionals and physicians are exposed to errors, mistreatment and mistakes during surgical operations. Malfunction of medical equipment can also take place during surgical operation. Therefore, a compulsory medical malpractice insurance covering medical errors should be introduced.
She said that the objective of such a system will be to compensate the patient materially in case he falls victim of a medical error.
