Health care professionals have the responsibility to inform a patient of side effects or other possible outcomes of a treatment plan. Doctors are required to obtain informed consent before going about a specific treatment plan whether that plan is as minor as the prescription of a drug or as serious as performing surgery. If a doctor goes forward without obtaining informed consent, a patient may receive medical treatments or procedures that cause unforeseen complications. These complications could result in greater injury or death.
Emergency situations where immediate treatment is needed to save a person’s life or prevent serious harm are the only exceptions to obtaining informed consent. If you are unsure whether or not your legal rights have been violated by a health care professional, contact an attorney today by calling 800-242-2874.
