The article presents the legal provisions containing the rights of children and duties of medical workers in providing medical care to children in the Russian Federation. It is shown that these legal provisions set out in the relevant legislative documents do not exist in isolation, but in conjunction with other legal norms, which complicates the possibility of their implementation by medical workers in full. It is stated that special responsibility and the cost of failure in modern conditions require medical staff to use not only professional knowledge, but also legal aspects accompanying their work. This suggests the need to focus attention to the learning process of students and listeners of faculties of improvement of professional skills and professional retraining of specialists of universities on peculiarities of realization of children's rights in providing them medical care.
