Abstract
A small number of health professionals are at risk of stepping over the boundaries of acceptable behaviour towards their clients. While sexual misconduct is clearly defined, the author argues that other inappropriate behaviours are harder to define--especially in nursing where touch is an important component of care.

Abstract
CONTEXT: In Sweden, patient malpractice claims are handled administratively and compensated if an independent physician review confirms patient injury resulting from medical error. Full access to all malpractice claims and hospital discharge data for the country provided a unique opportunity to assess the validity of patient claims as indicators of medical error and patient injury. OBJECTIVE: To determine: (1) the percentage of patient malpractice claims validated by independent physician review, (2) actual malpractice claims rates (claims frequency / clinical volume) and (3) differences between Swedish and other national malpractice claims rates. Design, setting and material: Swedish national malpractice claims and hospital discharge data were combined, and malpractice claims rates were determined by county, hospital, hospital department, surgical procedure, patient age and sex and compared with published studies on medical error and malpractice. RESULTS: From 1997 to 2004, there were 23 364 inpatient malpractice claims filed by Swedish patients treated at hospitals reporting 11 514 798 discharges. The overall claims rate, 0.20%, was stable over the period of study and was similar to that found in other tort and administrative compensation systems. Over this 8-year period, 49.5% (range 47.0-52.6%) of filed claims were judged valid and eligible for compensation. Claims rates varied significantly across hospitals; surgical specialties accounted for 46% of discharges, but 88% of claims. There were also large differences in claims rates for procedures. CONCLUSIONS: Patient-generated malpractice claims, as collected in the Swedish malpractice insurance system and adjusted for clinical volumes, have a high validity, as assessed by standardised physician review, and provide unique new information on malpractice risks, preventable medical errors and patient injuries. Systematic collection and analysis of patient-generated quality of care complaints should be encouraged, regardless of the malpractice compensation system in use.

Abstract
Expert evaluation of the correctness of medical care is one of the most complex problems for experts. A total of 303 expert evaluations of this kind were carried out in the Moscow regional Bureau during the recent 11 years. Expert evaluation of surgical care were the most numerous. The percentage of cases when grave defects of medical care were detected is rather high: 58-88%. The authors consider that a universal scheme of expert evaluation concerning infringement of the law by medical workers is to be developed for forensic medical service of the Russian Federation. They propose a table, which takes account of the type of error (diagnostic, strategic, medical, management), causes of errors (objective or subjective), causes of improper actions of physicians, relationship between death and the error, probability of survival if medical care had been proper, data on bringing an action against the physician, etc.
