Abstract (English):
Medical intervention is often associated with some harm to the patient’s health. At the same time, the very concept of “harm to health” does not mean the wrongfulness of a doctor’s act. The inevitable harm to health, without which medical intervention itself is impossible, is legitimate when there is the consent of the patient. The risk of causing more than unavoidable harm to health also requires consent and compliance with reasonable risk conditions. Harm to health, the infliction of which could not be foreseen, is an accident. Accident — innocent harm that does not imply criminal prosecution. Outside of consent, harm to health can be done legitimately in an emergency.
