Der ärztliche Behandlungsfehler: Was passiert, wenn Ärzte by Elisa Altwein

By Elisa Altwein

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Medizin - Gesundheitswesen, Public future health, Hochschule Neubrandenburg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: 1. Einleitung
1.1 Problemstellung
Jeden Tag werden in Deutschland zehntausende Patienten behandelt. Im Krankenhaus
beträgt die durchschnittliche Behandlungszahl etwa 17,2 Mio. Fälle im Jahr. Die
Häufigkeit von Vorwürfen potentieller Behandlungsfehler gegenüber Ärzten beträgt
derzeit 40.000 professional Jahr. Dabei sind nach dem RKI bei 12.000 Patienten tatsächlich
Behandlungsfehler nachgewiesen worden. Die Vorwürfe richten sich hauptsächlich
gegen die operativen Fachbereiche und besonders auffallend gegen Krankenhausärzte.
Das RKI sieht neben den fachspezifischen Problematiken die Fehler in der Organisation,
der Dokumentation und die Behandlung der Patienten in nicht geeigneten Einrichtungen.
Behandlungsfehler werden immer mehr in den Medien thematisiert. Dies geschieht
unter anderem aus dem Grund, dass die Schäden auf unsere höchsten Rechtsgüter
abzielen – unser Leben und unsere Gesundheit. Die Summe der Arzthaftpflichtschäden
nimmt immer mehr zu. Waren es 1991 nur eighty Mio. €, welche die Betriebshaftpflichtversicherungen
aufbringen mussten, so hat sich dieser Betrag im Jahre 1994 mit
210 Mio. € mehr als verdoppelt. Im Jahr 2003 sind die Schadensaufwendungen sogar
auf four hundred Mio. € gestiegen. Dies liegt mitunter darin begründet, dass die Patienten immer
besser durch die Medien oder Patientenschutzverbänden aufgeklärt werden und dadurch
sich eher dazu im Stande fühlen, ihre Rechte einzuklagen. Weitere Gründe finden
sich im ständig steigenden Anspruchsdenken der Patienten. Es besteht immer
weniger Verständnis oder Akzeptanz für schicksalhafte Entwicklungen oder eigene
Fehler. Patienten sind aber auch neugieriger geworden und recherchieren über ihre
Krankheit und die aufgetretenen Symptome im net. Dadurch haben sie einen höheren
Bildungsstand als früher und sind eher dazu in der Lage sich selbst ein Bild über
die Krankheit und den Krankheitsverlauf zu machen.
