Informed Consent And Medical Malpractice
As a patient, you have a right to be informed of certain facts when determining whether a particular course of medical treatment is in your best interest. Specifically, you are entitled to an explanation of any proposed medical procedure, alternative courses of treatment, and the extent of the risks involved. In legal terms, this is known as a patient’s right to informed consent.
A doctor’s failure to obtain informed consent from a patient prior to performing a medical procedure may place a patient at risk of suffering serious injury or medical complications, in addition to substantial emotional trauma. Lack of informed consent may also give rise to a claim for medical malpractice.
