Bou Faour requests investigating medical errors dossier

FEBRUARY 3, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Public Health Minister, Wael Abou Faour, on Tuesday requested of the General Prosecution to investigate the medical errors dossier, in light of the many complaints that the Ministry of Health receives from citizens.

He hoped that his plea would be looked at as an eye-opener to the negligence being traced on the part of those in charge of making sure that the law is being implemented in this field, namely the Doctor’s syndicate.

“It has been proven that this syndicate has not been taking any measures against those neglecting their duties, despite the fact that the number of fatal medical errors has lately rocketed,” the Minister added.
