Abstract

The paper analyses the issue of protection of patient confidentiality by means of civil law instruments. Protection of the patient’s interests related to the preservation of medical information beyond the access of unauthorized persons can be realized primarily through the protection of the patient’s right to medical secrecy and the protection of human personal interests in the form of the right to privacy. The study presents the issue of the violation of the patient’s confidentiality and the claims to be made in connection with such violation. A wider reflection is devoted to the issue of a claim for compensation for damage resulting from the violation of the patient’s rights and the infringement of his/her personal rights, as well as the effects of the co-occurring of these claims, both in the material and procedural perspectives.
