Abstract

Law Number 36 of 2009 concerning Health provides legal protection for the right to health services. Everyone has the right to health, according to Article 4. To prevent medical errors in patient care, hospitals ensure that doctors and other health workers have legal protection. Patients also receive legal protection from hospital liability and from doctors and other health professionals. Everyone has the right and is legally entitled to obtain health services, and the public is free to utilize government and/or local government health resources. The right to get public health services, especially in government hospitals, needs to be implemented specifically to guarantee health financing for the poor, and emergency financing in hospitals due to disasters and extraordinary events. As a result, enforcing the protection of human rights includes safeguarding the community's right to health care. In addition, the government and/or regional governments ensure and carry out the right to adequate health services through hospital facilities. Government hospitals are prohibited from rejecting patients or asking for advance payments, but they are required to provide health services, particularly in an emergency, in order to save the patient's life and prevent disability.
