...All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
.is for good men to do nothing…
Adv. Tzilli Amir – The Bar Association
the system is sick with cover – ups and concealment
I represent the “Tort Forum” of the Bar Association. The Healthcare system suffers from an epidemic of cover-up and concealment.
The Medical Records are whitewashed with multiple concealments, including forgeries.
At our previous hearing Amiad Taub showed us 3 Discharge summaries following surgery and each one had a different content with
brazen concealment, it is terrible what happened there while everyone knew very well the truth,… but NO ONE here fell off their chair !
Yet, 21 years ago the Knesset passed an excellent law, the Patients’ Rights Act, the right to information, to autonomy. After all, this is
a very basic right !
The IMA itself declares that the physician must provide the whole information. So why are we talking about a new legislation ?
We already have a law which is NOT enforced !
The State Comptroller’s in-depth reports of 2004, 2012 & 2015, state that the Patients’ Rights Act was violated and NOTHING CHANGED !
It is UNACCEPTABLE !
I can attest that out of 100 people coming to see me, maybe 1 filed a complaint with the Ombudsman. So you want to tell me that 11.000
complaints the Ombudsman received reflect the situation ? That’s NOT reasonable.
Hence, our position is UNEQUIVOCAL. The Ombudsman’s office MUST be OUT of the Dept of Health !
For decades it has been part of the Health Dept so look at the total fiasco we have !
NO ONE objects to a physician’s apology, but it can NOT be at the expense of the basic Right of the Patient to know what happened ?
It is an UNCONDITIONAL Right ! It can not be dependent on any Immunity, or any type of Physician’s Protection.
