Annotation: The article is devoted to the study of the problem of ensuring the protection of medical workers from the encroachments of patients and their relatives in the Russian health care system, the study of the level of awareness of physicians about the mechanism for protecting their rights in case of conflict situations when providing medical care to patients. As a result of the conducted research, the authors come to the conclusion that it is necessary to improve the legal literacy of physicians, provide the necessary level of material and technical support for medical workers with modern means of self-defence, and improve the legal regulation of the safety of medical activities. The proposed measures will increase the effectiveness of the implementation of the protection of the rights of medical workers and will become a means of preventing encroachments on them in the health care system. Fostering a respectful attitude of patients to medical professionals, increasing the prestige of the profession in society is an important component of preventing attacks on health workers.
