Corporate harmfulness – in the margins of the Supreme Court ruling of 29 May 2018, reference number act SDI 14/18


Wrześniewska-Wal, Iwona



Subject and Keywords:

doctor   professional responsibility   corporative harmfulness   punishment


The voted judgment refers to two extremely important issues related to the professional judiciary of doctors. In the conditions of very rapid and quite chaotic legislative changes, the role of the jurisprudence of medical courts is growing, although they are not courts in a strict sense, and the first and the second instance panels include non-lawyers. The first issue indicates the basic obligations of the court of second instance, which require the court not only not to disregard any plea raised in the appeal, but also to provide a fair view of each of them. The medical court is required not only to issue its judgment on the basis of law, but also to convincingly substantiate it. The second important issue is the imposition of penalties, especially the most severe penalty, i.e. deprivation of the right to practice medicine. The above decision of the Supreme Court also raises the aspect of circumstances, including “social harmfulness of the act”, which should be taken into account when assessing and individualizing the sentence. This decision, which is extremely important from the point of view of the practice of medical courts, will be the subject of this study.
