Summary of "The Problems of Socially Dangerous Acts of Medical Workers in Sphere of Biomedical Technologies."

The complex problem is considered related to socially dangerous acts of medical workers in the sphere of biomedical technologies covering, besides "traditional" iatrogenic crimes, other risks of application of the mentioned technologies for criminal purposes. The study uses the results of original observations and theoretical findings and data of information content analysis of 2012-1017, data of analysis of medical and judicial practice and also result of sociological survey of experts-medical workers of various profiles professionally related to application of biomedical technologies (n=278). The social legal status of medical worker conditions a potential possibility of application of corresponding abilities, skills, competences, official position and authority to commit crimes in the sphere of their professional activities. The backlog of legal regulation of the sphere of biomedical technologies causes both possibility for committing by medical workers socially dangerous acts and so-called gray zones of responsibility that significantly impacts on potential of applying the given technologies for criminal purposes. The risks of criminal application of biomedical technologies by medical workers are related first of all to such most criminogenic spheres of medical activity as transplantology (mentioned by 79% of respondents), extra-corporal insemination (67%), implementation of various biomedical examinations involving patient (59%), bio-pharmaceutics (55%). The article emphasizes that risks of criminal application of biomedical technologies by medical workers is to be considered both from position of established actual medical legal practices and taking into account potential of biotechnological development of medicine in the future.
