The Medical Malpractice Bill: Pros & Cons

PReMA Life

A recent movement in Thai society has led to the introduction of the Patient Injury Bill, which has become popularly known as the “Medical Malpractice Bill” (the Bill). The purpose of the Bill is to set up a compensation fund for patients suffering from healthcare injuries. Under the Bill, compensation should be timely paid to patients regardless of whether a fault was committed by the medical care provider, known as a “sanatorium.” By providing a remedy to injured patients, the Bill aims to decrease the number of court cases regarding medical malpractice.
