Free public health care in the USSR creates conditions for the normal relationship between a doctor and a patient, in which there are no material considerations. Receiving material support for their work from the state, the doctor does not consider the patient as an object to receive benefits.
Medical ethics deals with the three sides of activity of health workers: their relationships with patients, and between them and the society.
The decision on the health condition referring to him requires Medica very close attention to all the signs that may indicate the existence of the disease. A correct assessment of complaints of the patient finds it difficult in many cases that is not always the patient is able to Express and explain what is happening or else says about your condition inconsistent, confusing, and often contradictory. One of the main mistakes that sometimes make doctors, is the idea that the nature of complaints and the patient's behavior in General are not in accordance with the data of the surveys and, in particular, that the severity of the disease condition sick exaggerated. Except for a few, mainly expert cases when the medic can really deal with a worsening sick available to it the painful symptoms (aggravate) or feigned disease (simulation), based on even the most minor complaints of the patient is always something or other ill health. If various complaints of physical ill health still not confirmed by the results of a thorough examination, itusually talking about the availability of mental illness. Physician to some complaints of patients as something not worth much attention, and as a result - often when this advice is not to go into the disease," "pull yourself together", "not to be dismissed", etc., insult or exasperating patients. On the contrary, the ability of the physician thoughtfully and carefully evaluate all subjective data (complaints of the patient) and the results of objective examination, the ability to make one feel sick in the survey that in his state of want to understand; finally that he was sick, is for the doctor not just "interesting" and "difficult" opportunity, but first of all suffering face with its inherent features,all this paves the way an individual approach, and facilitate a correct diagnosis, and winning the location of the patient (the latter is of great importance for successful treatment).
The need to provide the patient as much as possible effective care requires health workers to constantly improve their professional knowledge.
The behaviour of the physician has a number of features; patience, care, consideration, tact and self-control should be the basis of relations not only of the physician to the patient, but also of health workers in relation to each other. The absence of any of these qualities patient brings direct or indirect harm. Treatment of all patients should be attentive, caring, soft and yet devoid of sentimentality and familiarity, i.e. should be simple and natural. Equally important is a form of treatment to the patient. Best is to contact by name and patronymic or (worse) by name. In the first case, there is a principle of individualization. The appeal of "sick" largely faceless and addressed on the merits, not to a specific person, and to the patient at all.
Respect for the individual patient manifests and address him, "you"Sposobnosti to control oneself and includes the ability of the physician to fully submit their thoughts and interests of professional activity. At the time of communication with patients health workers should be able to separate themselves completely from their own Affairs and experiences. The talk of the personnel not directly relevant to the work he is executing, often treated patients as inattention, contempt and indifference. The ability of the physician to control your feelings must manifest itself and in its relation to various painful parties, inevitably some accompanying diseases: he must learn not to experience feelings of fear (before the mentally ill, infectious patients), nauseous, and so on, In the interests of proper treatment and proper care should suppress these feelings, otherwise the work of the physician will become impossible.
