Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Covid-19 emergency posed, among others, the problem of the current criminal legislation to manage the malpractice disputes against doctors, involved in spite of themselves in a situation that put a strain on the tightness of the national health system and forced to operate in the presence of numerous professional, economic, clinical, scientific, organizational and environmental constraints. Among the most suitable tools to grasp the specificity of the moment, the rule of judgment of art. 2236 of the Italian Civil Code, which makes it possible to limit the operator's responsibility to the health professions in solving technical problems of special difficulty in cases of willful misconduct or gross negligence.
