The paper analyzes the existing provisions of the regulatory and legal framework governing the right of medical workers to insure the professional liability risk for the harm caused to the life and health of citizens. It considers three conceptual approaches to the professional errors made by healthcare workers. A basic thesis is formulated, which allows determination of fundamental differences between a healthcare worker’s professional offense and professional mistake. The authors propose and substantiate the normative definition of a professional error made by a healthcare worker.
