MoH in Kuwait to Pay Compensation to Victims of Medical Errors

KuwaitAnnahar daily reported that a new procedure will be followed by The Insurance Committee in the Ministry of Health () in . This new method will allow the ministry to pay compensation to Kuwaitis who can prove that they were victims of medical errors. But the amount of compensation won’t be paid unless the court confirms the damage and decides. Reliable sources said “The ministry will have to get doctors insured and will have to pay KD 120 annually per doctor to the insurance company. The company in turn will pay compensation to citizens who win cases against the ministry”.

Minister Dr Hilal Al-Sayer submitted three decisions on Thursday. In the first, he appointed head of Health Sector at Ports and Borders Department Dr Hameed Gallium as attaché at the Health Office in Paris. The second decision was on the appointment of Dr Abdullah Al-Wateeb as attaché at the Health Office in Washington.
