Legal Issues

Consent:

There are 2 basic types of consent:

Informed Consent: When a reliable patient gives consent

        to treatment after being informed of

        the risks and benefits

Implied Consent:  A legal assumption that an unreliable

      patient would want help during an

      emergency situation.  An unreliable

      patient is considered to be any patient

      who is not fully alert and oriented as to

      who or where they are.  Implied consent

      also applies to minors(under18) whose

      parents are not available to give consent
