ATLANTA, GA, March 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Before a doctor begins a patient's treatment, he or she will typically ask the patient to agree to the proposed treatment and to do so in writing, fully aware of the possible risks and benefits of the treatment.
This is part of the process known as informed consent, whereby a patient learns and considers the consequences of a proposed medical intervention or procedure before agreeing to it. If a doctor fails to get a patient's informed consent for a treatment, it is possible that he or she could be held liable for an adverse effect of the treatment that should have been covered in the informed consent process.
