dc.description.abstractBACKGROUND: There is a paucity of information on the perception of patients about ethical issues in medical practice. AIM: To determine the type and frequency of ethical problems perceived by patients hospitalized in public and private hospitals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eighty eight subjects aged 65 years (48% women), admitted to a public hospital and 44 subjects aged 59 years (52% women) admitted to a private clinic answered a survey about ethical problems. The main issues covered were medical information management, participation in decision making and intimacy of patients. RESULTS: Fifty three percent of patients perceived at least one ethical problem. Patients admitted to the public hospital perceived more communication and intimacy problems than their peers admitted to a private clinic. CONCLUSIONS: Approximately half of the interviewed patients acknowledged the presence of ethical problems, especially in the communication and intimacy areas).en
