Patients who have plastic surgery ahead need to check whether the hospital has Surgery Real-name System. The Surgery Real-name System is a system that applies in the medical law to guarantee the patient’s rights and safety, and is a legal device that can prevent ‘Shadow doctor’, which became an issue recently.
What would it be like if the doctor during the consultation was not the doctor who performed the surgery? Safety of the surgery, the relationship between the surgeon and the hospital, transparency of the treatment cannot be guaranteed. The Surgery Real-name System is a medical system designed to reduce the risk and concerns and enhance the safety and rights of the patients.
So how does Surgery Real-name System work? As the Surgery Real-name System requires the surgeon’s name and picture to be posted in front of the operation room, it allows the patient to check if the surgeon is directly performing the surgery in advance.
Since the Surgery Real-name System is implemented to prevent the anxiety of the patients, the surgeon in charge needs to be responsible for the post-care as well as the surgery. As the surgeon who did the consultation understands the purpose of the surgery and expectations of the patient accurately, the surgery performed directly by the consultant can bring the most satisfactory results. Moreover, the medical staff who performed the surgery are most familiar with the patient's condition as well as the situation at the time of the operation, so it is important to keep in mind that one dedicated medical team handling the entire process is the key point of safe operation.
In addition, Surgery Real-name System, as well as CCTV Observation System is both needed to prevent and check the dangerous situation that may occur during the surgery. Therefore the patient and the guardian need to check if two safety systems are operating in the hospital.
