In clinics and care facilities, both narcotics and patient data must be controlled in a legally compliant manner. Details on the legally compliant storage of narcotics can be found in the guidelines on measures for securing narcotics supplies (“Richtlinien über Maßnahmen zur Sicherung von Betäubungsmittelvorräten”) as stipulated by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM), which we have made available for you here.
When it comes to the protection of patient data, there are no uniform security provisions in place; however, standards do exist in Section 203 of the German Penal Code (StGB) and the professional regulations for doctors. Generally speaking, attending physicians are legally obliged to maintain a duty of confidentiality towards their patients and not pass on information obtained in connection with the treatment to third parties. As a result, it is important to ensure that patient data is protected against unauthorised access.
