IEU-Alliance in co-operation with SIN-NL declares
2007 as the year of and for victims of medical errors.
Physicians, nurses, hospitals,risk- insurers, healthcare-insurers, Health Inspectorate, professional medical and hospital organisations, politicians and the media:
Take your responsibility:
-inform the victims of medical errors and/or members of their family fully and correctly
-give adequate follow-up diagnostics and remedial medical care to repair the damage
give continuity of care and give access to genuine medical care
-give respectful and timely financial compensation.
Above all: be open and honest to the victim and his/her members of the family according to your legal, professional and ethical obligations and
report medical errors according to your legal, professional and ethical obligations in order to ensure examination and analysis and to develop systems of prevention of medical errors.
We strongly plead to set up a parliamentary inquiry by the European Parliament and Truth commissions to examine the medical errors,acknowledge the damage and sorrow which has been caused to the victims and to formulate recommendations to prevent further unnecessary harm to future victims and their families.
