Luxembourg does not have a specific patient rights Act. The Act on hospital establishments of 28 August 1998, contains in Chapter 10 a catalogue of important patient rights of which some are only applicable to the patients who are admitted in a hospital, while other rights are applicable to every patient. A new Code of medical ethics has been adopted and approved by Ministerial Decree of 7 July 2005. This Code of medical ethics contains a specific chapter IV about the relations between the doctor and the patient. This code is legally binding.
