[09/27/16]   Know your Rights 8.

Right to a second Opinion.

Because treatments are continually improving, it is important to find someone who has experience with your condition. Many people seek the knowledge and advice of more than one doctor to confirm a diagnosis and evaluate treatment options. This is called a second opinion.

Every patient has the right to a second opinion with or without request or when requested as the per Ministry of Health Patient charter.

Most doctors understand the value of second opinion. This could be to confirm a diagnosis, understand existing treatment options or seek perspectives from different doctor specialties on your condition.

Do not fret, go get it.

[09/27/16]   Know your rights 7

Right to the get involved in medical research programmes.

Every patient has the right to decide whether to be involved in any medical research programmes.

This must be with your written consent. All aspects of such a research must be explained to the patient before hand.

Obtaining consent involves informing the subject about
his or her rights, the purpose of the study, the procedures
to be undergone, and the potential risks and benefits of participation. Subjects in the study must participate
willingly.
.

[09/22/16]   Know your rights 6;
Right to refusal of treatment.

At times, the patient decides that enough is enough and I am not taking any more of these drugs or I am not going back to the operating table. At other times, after evaluating the probability of recovery, the patient decides not to undergo certain medical procedures. Do patients have a right to refuse medical treatment?

Every adult patient has the right to refusal of treatment, even when that might might put his/her life at risk so longer as it does not put the life of others at danger.

This refusal must be communicated verbally with a witness or in writing. The patient must be mentally competent to make this decision and all relevant information about the treatment and its alternatives must have been provided.

The decision must be voluntary without the influence of friends, relatives or hospital professionals. The patient can also in writing make future treatment refusals to cater for a period when they might become mentally incompetent. This writing must be clear and properly state what treatments must not be performed on him/her even when this might endanger his/her life.

The medical practitioner can however proceed with the treatment if the patient is evaluated as mentally incompetent and if reasonable grounds exist to suppose that after receiving treatment, the patient will significantly recover and give his/her retrospective consent.

When the refusal of treatment by the patient or his/her authorized representative interferes with the provision of adequate treatment according to professional standards, the relationship between the patient and the health provider shall be terminated with reasonable prior advance notice.

The right to refuse treatment stems from the fact that every individual has the right to autonomous decision making so long as that decision making does not harm others.

Know your rights 5:
The patient's right to medical records.
The Uganda Patients charter, Third draft 2009 states that every patient has a right to receive a copy of his/her medical records from the health facility.

The Ministry of Health is the custodian of all medical records but the patient retains a right to be provided of his own records when requested.

On March 26 2014, in a court case by Micheal Mubangizi and Jeniffer Musimenta (in photo courtesy of IPS) Vs Mulago Hospital, where the couple were demanding for complete medical records at the birth of their twins, where the whereabouts of the second twin was under dispute, the High court ordered Mulago Hospital to furnish the couple with outstanding medical documents, a registry of children delivered on the same day as Babirye and her sister, a list of health workers then on duty and a copy of the DNA test.

This ruling set a precedence on the patient's right to access to his/her own medical records.

The Constitution says that everyone shall have a right to information held by the state so long as the information does not put the security of the state at risk.

The medical records should be kept by the Ministry of Health for 25 years and 3 years after death of the records' owner.

[09/20/16]   Know Your rights 4.

The Right to Emergence Treatment; Every person has the right to receive emergency treatment at any medical facility unconditionally, without first having to make payments for the care.

The hospital to which the patient is taken must be seen as making positive attempts to provide this emergency care and advise the patient to an appropriate facility if they don't have the required facilities.

The effort to save a person needing emergency care should be the top priority of not only the medical professional but also of police and any other citizen who is connected to that matter or happens to notice such an incident.

Emergency treatment should be instantaneously given with the aim of preserving life, of stabilizing the patient. Accident victims, patients with a cute pain, a pregnant woman at risk of losing her life and the unborn child must be given instantaneous care to save the life.

The right to emergency care is irrespective of whether the patient has insurance cover, has the ability to pay immediately, or has other reimbursement facilities.
