Abstract: The present article seeks to conclude the impact of the inaccurate medical care within theobstetrics (OB) and gynecology (GYN) practice, its social and professional effects and the most often flaws met in daily praxis, through the following objectives: A comparison between different studies conducted around the globe, regarding the amount of liability claims in OB-GYN compared with other medical specialties; the public health and financial implications derived from these and the impact upon the doctor – patient relationship. Another objective was to asses a brief classification of stages within the OB and GYN medical act where mistakes may be committed. The paper presents also a summary of the specific incidents that are at high risk for malpractice claims in both OB and GYN and a classification approach to identify the legal liability (criminal or civil) of the medical staff and the forms of medical guilt – exemplified by case reports in the archives of the Institute of legal Medicine Cluj.
