Deontological Responsibility arises from the failure of licensed professionals to comply with what is established in deontological norms and the internal organizations of Professional Associations for the practice of their profession.

Civil Liability originates from behaviors that do not conform to the set of medical practices accepted for treating patients, resulting in an obligation to compensate for the harm caused.

C. Disciplinary Responsibilities
Disciplinary Responsibility arises from the breach of internal rules in force for healthcare personnel and doctors in the area where they perform their duties.
D. Criminal Liability
Criminal liability is caused by omissions or conduct that are classified as crimes. This leads to a criminal procedure against healthcare professionals or doctors for the injury or harm caused to a patient.
This action is taken when the harm inflicted on a patient results from criminal conduct by medical personnel.

Financial Liability of the Public Administration arises when public services do not function correctly, resulting in injuries or damages to a group of patients or an individual patient entitled to compensation.
