Summary
Preventing Medical Malpractice and Compensating Victimised Patients in China is the first book in English on the legal remedies for preventing medical errors and compensating victims of medical malpractice in China from an economic and legal perspective. Specifically, those legal remedies include tort liability, regulation, insurance and social security. The new medical liability regime based on the Tort Liability Law 2009 currently provides the primary legal remedy against medical malpractice. However, the role of alternative regimes in medical quality assurance and victim compensation should not be ignored. This book: - gives a full description of all the current legal remedies for the prevention of medical malpractice and compensation for iatrogenic injuries in China, in order to see how those different legal instruments interact with and impact on one another. - examines how those legal remedies work in practice and what impact they have on society, based on an extensive analysis of court decisions, several semi-structured interviews, and a review of the available empirical literature. - summarises the law and economics studies on medical malpractice and applies economic theories to the legal remedies in China, in order to put forward policy recommendations to China. The ultimate conclusion of this work is that although many aspects of the legal remedies in China are consistent with the economic model of accident law as far as the prevention of medical malpractice is concerned, they still need great improvement when it comes to compensation for iatrogenic injuries. Overall, this book provides a thorough examination and evaluation of the legal remedies for medical malpractice in China, especially taking into account the latest developments in economic theories and new empirical findings. Hence, it will be of interest to legal and economic scholars, students, lawyers, insurers and policy makers responsible for ensuring the quality of medical care.--
