A doctor in his professional practice will always come into contact with humans who expect help, and in carrying out his professional duties, he must respect and always respect the rights of patients based on noble values, masculinity and glory for the benefit of the patient. The right here is the freedom given by the community over power, freedom and status, while the obligation of health workers to provide services to the community, prevent abuse and maintain the quality of their profession and discipline the quality of its members. In practice, there are often various violations in an effort to maintain the quality of the profession and the quality discipline of its members, such as: deviations received by patients in the recovery period after treatment, due to the patient's loss of consciousness after treatment. , such as the occurrence of sexual harassment by professional health professionals, so that legal protection is required for patients as victims of sexual harassment crimes. This condition is certainly not in line with or contrary to the objectives of criminal law and health services, namely: providing protection against crimes against the body and human life, extending life, reducing suffering, and accompanying the patient to the end of his life. All of this must be done as an effort to humanize the patient as a whole person and humanity itself.
