Human Rights are many….they are recognized globally and need to be respected and afforded to every individual on this planet. Unfortunately, some people don’t know their rights for many reasons, could be because of being raised in a community where you only see and find what is afforded for people before, but you may not have an idea of how the situation is supposed to be “here comes the importance of education and awareness”, or it could be because they are in a situation where asking or seeking for your rights can be a cause of simply loosing your life “as it happens in some countries” .
despite the fact of being in the health sector, and dealing with many patients, I am not quite sure if all the patients do know their rights but some certainly do. and i feel that it is also my responsibility to maintain their rights at my place in the most possible way, as in having their condition to be confidential, to know what we are going to do in terms of assessment, treatment and to share with them their plan of care,…etc. i think those rights are the ones i can keep from my side, but from higher authority’s side it should provide a good environment for receiving treatment, easy access to health care,…etc
until recently, In Sudan, People were struggling with one of the procedures which is meant to keep people’s rights, it is basically when someone got injured in an accident ” whatever the kind of the accident” the doctors can’t start treating him/her until doing the initial procedure of getting information about the accident location, time, who brought the patient/ victim to the hospital?,…etc. a lot of information need to be taken while the patient is fighting for life
many people die in the sake of completing the procedure and doctors can’t do anything about it, as it is considered a rule that you shouldn’t break. some doctors, of course start treating patients without waiting for the procedures to finish that puts them in a long series full of investigations and courts.
Authorities think it preserves people rights by knowing what exactly happen to the victim and catching the offender, Doctors think it is a waste of time in such a critical moments that could save a life.and one of the rights of people is to get an easy access to treatment or health care but in such a way it is really difficult
Sometimes, you see the fault, but your hands are hindered, and your mouth is closed, and you feel that you are freezed from taking actions towards what you deeply know it is a “RIGHT”
