Medical disputes are "cancers" that breed in the medical field. The inconsistency and asymmetry between the doctors and patients based on medical knowledge and their respective interests have led to an increasingly tense relationship between doctors and patients, seriously affecting social harmony. At present, the modes of handling medical disputes are mainly voluntary consultations in the hospital, people's mediation in medical disputes, administrative mediation, and people's court litigation. Each model has its own advantages and disadvantages. In order to reduce the time cost and cost of dealing with both doctors and patients, and to create a harmonious relationship between doctors and patients and promote social harmony, in December 2017, the courts of the district and our hospital established a mediation room for medical disputes to explore medical disputes. The case resolved the new mechanism before the case was filed.
