The greatest human wealth is health .Declarations on human rights enumerate with one voice the right on health for every human being as one of their fundamental rights.

According to human rights and international law the states should respect to the right and provide appropriate therapeutic and hygienic facilities which help to the patient to retrieve their health.

Patient safety is not limited just into providing appropriate medical care during treatment process but patient person should receive physical; mental and social safety in all aspects of individual and social life as a citizenship like others from the time a person is infected with disease to the end of treatment process. And the legal system can’t disregard the patient safety particularly in their social life and dealing with other people since having healthy citizens mentally and physically is a necessary requirement of each state. As racial or sex discrimination is not accepted ؛disregarding fundamental rights of a person like the right on health ؛sufficient treatment the right on occupation proportional with ones abilities the right on privacy just because of that person is patient is an inhuman behavior. It should be noticed more in human rights and local statute.

Protection of patient safety as the most important right of a patient is a duty should be done by all members of a society therefore awareness to patient safety ؛correct behavior and interaction of other people with a patient are prior to any other measure. In this article tried to be noticed more to the patient safety emphasizing on this issue that we need more inquiry on patient safety and how to manage it.
