3 Purpose and Method To check implementation of some patients’ right five years after legislation in Low of Health (2005) and to research correlation with patients satisfaction. National patients' survey in December 2009. A structured questionnaire was completed by patients, after receiving the health care service in 87 hospitals (five day population) and 163 primary health care facilities (one day population). Overall patient satisfaction was measured using a five point ordinal scale. Statistics’ method: frequency distribution, Chi-squared test and multiple linear regression. Significance level (p) less than 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
4 Legislation and regulation Important aspects of patients’ rights have been addressed in the Law on Health Care Protection (2005), including the following topics: Availability of health care according to health needs, resources and equal access Rights and obligations related to compulsory health insurance Information to the patient + inform to duties Free choice for patients (including choice of doctor) Privacy and confidentiality of information and data Self-determination and informed consent Access to medical documentation Dissatisfaction and complaints Liability and compensation in case of health damage or harm Public information on health protection (e.g. in work or in the event of epidemics).

6 Patient satisfaction survey with hospital care (2) Did staff informe you about your duties in hospital? Yes 87,8% No 12,2% χ2 =126,922, df=3, p≤0.000
7 Patient satisfaction survey with hospital care (3) Do you aware of the appeals and complaints mechanism? Yes 76,4% No 23,6% χ2 =298,939, df=3, p≤0.000
8 Patient satisfaction survey with hospital care (4) How much are you satisfide with given informatin about tests, procedures, tretman and results? (five ordinal scale from very dissetisfide to very setisfide) Dissetisfide Nurses 2,2% Doctors 2,2%
9 Patient satisfaction survey with PHC servicies general practis, pedijatrics & gynecologist (1) 07.12.2009.; 57.527 respondents, 171 PHC facilities How did you choose your doctor?

13 Conclusion (1) Multiple regression test confirmed that all the variables related to patients’ rights are statistically highly significant on overall satisfaction with health care (p <0.000).
14 Conclusion (2) Almost 50% patients are not completely aware about their rights after two campaigns. We need beter strategy. There is a statistically significant difference on patient awareness about the rights to the various hospital departments or PHC servicies. These results show that there is need for special research of this issue. We should check medical staff also. Patients’ rights is an efficient tool for quality control, risk management, conflict resolution and prevention of litigation. Uh …
