The right to information stated on Article 7 and Article 8 of Law No. 36 of 2009 on Health as well as the shortcomings and advantages of health services. Along with the increasing awareness of the community to get good health service, raises the attitude of the critical patient. Patients no longer hesitate to ask the alternative treatment they will receive, whether in accordance with the cost incurred. The hospital is a complex organization because it is capital-intensive, energy, technology and various issues, covering the fields of law, economics, ethics, human rights, technology, and others with different principles and perspectives. The complexity of services in hospitals requires quality assurance and hospital service safety in the form of accreditation. Hospital accreditation is an acknowledgment given by an independent accrediting institution related to the assessment of the fulfillment of quality standards of hospital services on an ongoing basis. Therefore an accredited hospital is expected to effectively improve the quality of its services to their patients. The increased quality of hospital services will certainly improve patient safety and provide protection for patients.
