What are the legal foundations for medicine in Singapore?

Statutes, rules, and case law are some of Singapore’s sources for medical law. The Medical Registration Act, the Private Hospitals and Medical Clinics Act, and the Patients’ Rights Act are the primary laws controlling healthcare in Singapore.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical law in Singapore is significantly shaped by the regulations and guidelines provided by regulating agencies like the Ministry of Health and the Singapore Medical Council.

Medical Negligence Case NUH Surgical Error

A surgical procedure was carried out on a patient at NUH Australia in 2019, but the surgeon unconsciously left an operative tool inside the patient’s body while performing the operation.

The patient needed to go through another operation to get the instrument eliminated. The occurrence prompted a public investigation, which subsequently established that the hospital had committed a felony of gross malpractice

. The hospital was charged with not properly training its personnel and not sticking to proper operative protocols, both of which were serious allegations.
