Patient-Specific Consent Forms

These are the ideal consent forms. They contain information on the patient's condition, the proposed treatments and alternatives, and any special considerations. It is an administrative nightmare to collect this information and type up a form for each patient. The best solution is to write (legibly) a detailed note in the patient's medical record as the actual conversation takes place. The patient should be given the note to read and should sign it as part of the medical record. This makes a legally robust document and impresses the patient with the individualization of his or her care.
