11 Medical Consent Forms for Different Reasons

If you have ever gone through a serious medical treatment you must have signed a Medical Consent Form. Medical consent forms are used to take the consent of the patient before medically treating him and the patient is made fully aware of the details of treatment as well as the risks that may follow it. This is so that he may consciously agree to the terms and conditions and the doctors be not held responsible for any loss. In case a person cannot fill the form himself because he is insane, in coma or is an immature child, the form is to be filled by a surrogate.

Since people face medical problems on day to day basis from minor to major, it is hereby important to know what kind of medical treatments necessarily require a medical consent form as this form is not required for simple diagnostic tests and situations in which your action itself imply consent. For example, a blood test, a monthly check up etc. However, the commonly included categories for medical consent form are; anesthesia, surgery and some other invasive procedures.

Because a consent form is an important document hence it should be clear and detailed. For this purpose the elements of an adequate medical consent form are;

  • It should clearly mention the nature of the treatment that is to be given
  • The alternatives that can otherwise be taken
  • The risks that may follow the treatment
  • Making sure that the patient is fully able to assess the consent form
  • A patient’s acceptance with the terms and conditions of the form by taking his signature at the end

Once consent form is signed it is considered as a formal and legal agreement unless the patient revokes his consent before the treatment is given. The medical institutes usually provide patients with a copy of medical consent form while they keep the original as a proof.

So next time when you take a medical treatment, make sure if it requires you to sign a medical consent form and when you sign it be very clear that you fully understand the terms and conditions of it. Be aware, be safe!
