For example, a malpractice case that reached the Supreme Court was a team of doctors consisting of dr. Come on, Dr. Hendi Siagian, and dr. Henry Simanjuntak at Dr.Kandau Manado Hospital against the victim, Julia Fransiska Makatey. Another case, malpractice by dr.Heryani Parewasi, Sp.OG. at Anutapura Hospital in Palu against the victim, Nur Indah Restuwati.

It is better if Law Number 29 of 2004 concerning Medical Practice is formulated regarding medical malpractice along with explanations so that the general public, doctors and the world of health can understand and know the criteria for criminal acts of medical malpractice.
