However patients' rights are being violated thousands of times every day in our country. More than these patients' rights' violations, the essential point is the lack of a mechanism to claim those rights and to complain about the practices which violate them.

Some of the reasons for this are, presumably, an underdeveloped consciousness of patients' rights, an absence of patient organizations, and insufficient ethical and legal regulations on patients' rights. These deficiencies were diminished somewhat by the "Regulation on Patients' Rights," which was prepared by the Ministry of Health in1998.
