The Trap of the Medical Certificate

  • A. F. Halmosh
Part of the Medicolegal Library book series (MEDICOLEGAL, volume 5)

Abstract

Paperwork such as the provision of medical certificates, attestations and expert opinions has become part of the doctors daily work. Almost every day the mail brings demands for information about patients. Since the physician is bound by his vow of professional secrecy, each demand is accompanied by a legal document, signed by the patient, certifying his waiver of his privilege of privacy.
