9-Right to Safety

Each individual has the right to be free from harm caused by the poor functioning of health services, medical malpractice and errors, and the right  of access to health services and treatments that meet high safety standards.

To guarantee this right, hospitals and health services must continuously monitor risk factors and ensure that electronic medical devices are properly maintained and operators are properly trained. All health professionals must be fully responsible for the safety of all phases and elements of a medical treatment. 

Medical doctors must be able to prevent the risk of errors by monitoring precedents and receiving continuous training.

Health care staff that report existing risks to their superiors and/or peers must be protected from possible adverse consequences.
