Theyare legal concerns because the elements involved are acts of crime which the health care providerdoes omission and commission. In our case we did not observed this legal aspects that affects our client’s right. Indeed,when we ask her if she’s satisfied to the care rendered to her by the health care providers in themedical institution she’s been admitted for delivering her first born baby girl, she said YES. Shewent to a hospital which promotes the MDG 4(reduce child mortality) and 5(improve maternalhealth).
