The Importance Of Adequate Informed Consent In Gastroenterology Malpractice Litigation
When a claim is brought against a gastroenterologist, a breach of informed consent is often cited. Although almost all procedures have a signed consent form, the structure of obtaining informed consent may allow challenge that the mere signed consent form does not actually represent true informed consent.
Educational brochures and reminder calls are not always enough to ensure compliance -- especially for direct access patients you don't meet prior to procedures. You need a new approach.
