When a doctor has decided on a treatment plan for your condition, they are required to obtain your informed consent before proceeding with the treatment. This means that the doctor must inform you of the chosen treatment and must go over any possible side effects of the treatment. Only after you have agreed to the treatment plan can a treatment plan be enacted. Even a treatment as simple as the prescription of a drug requires your informed consent. A doctor that performs a surgery or administers drugs without your consent has violated your rights. If this has occurred, contact an attorney immediately to learn about your legal options. The only time when informed consent is not needed is in the event of an emergency that requires a doctor to perform a surgery or administer drugs in order to save a person’s life or prevent further serious harm.
