Whenever a doctor decides on what treatment is best for your condition, it is their responsibility to discuss the treatment plan with you before proceeding with treatments. In order to receive your informed consent, the doctor must explain the treatment plan and make you aware of any possible side effects or complications associated with the treatment. A doctor who treats you without your informed consent has violated your rights. This type of negligent behavior could potentially cause serious health complications and does not uphold the standards of care set for the health care industry.
The only exception that allows a doctor to treat a patient without informed consent is an emergency situation where immediate treatment is needed to save a person’s life or save them from further serious harm. If you believe that your rights have been violated by a medical professional that did not obtain your informed consent, contact an attorney at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal options.
