Medical errors law will allow patients to get answers
Patients who are harmed by medical error and even those who “could have” been harmed by unintended medical events, will soon be entitled to know what happened, under New Brunswick law.
The Health Quality and Patient Safety Act will also provides protection to doctors, dentists and midwives who apologize to their patients, from having those apologies used against them in civil lawsuits.
The New Brunswick Medical Society says it should be a positive force for change, once the Department of Health finalizes the regulations that will allow the Act to be enforced.
